Cane Footstool Workshop

Cane FootstoolCustomise your own stunning cane footstool!! Choose from either a white or natural cane frame and add a fabric of your choice to create a unique piece of furniture!

In this workshop you’ll learn how to professionally upholster a seat pad using foam, wadding and fabric. You’ll learn skills that you can use to recover your dining chairs or stool tops so that they look like new! We’ll even show you how to attach a dust cover to the underside.
