in Toowoomba
28-29 September

Saturday 28 September 2019 - Sunday 29 September 2019

Upholstery Basics

We’re teaching at Macgregor Spring Arts Retreat 2019!

28 to 29 September 2019

Inspired by the array of colours that surround the iconic Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers, our 2019 Spring Retreat invites you to draw inspiration from your bright surroundings and get creative!

Spanning one fun-filled weekend, Spring Retreat is perfect for absolute beginners, people looking to explore new mediums or those new to McGregor Retreats.

Home Furnishings Workshop

You will get to:

  • make a lampshade
  • upholster a footstool
  • learn how to recover your dining chairs!!!

Join us for a fun creative weekend package at University of Southern Queensland in Toowoomba.

Skill level: Beginner to intermediate

Booking and Cost information: Please visit the ArtsWorx website

Do you have a room that is looking a little drab and in need of a refresh? Small furniture items and soft furnishings can really add interest and impact in a room and bring it to life!

In this fun-filled workshop you’ll learn all or some of the following: how to create your own professional standard lampshade, upholster a footstool or small bench seat, learn how to recover the seat pad of a dining chair or perhaps you’ll bring your own project. These items can really inject personality and fun to your interiors at a fraction of the cost of a big makeover!

You’ll go home with skills and confidence you need to create more home furnishings.
