The Upholstery Seat Pad Makeover
In this workshop you will learn how to breath new life into an old chair.
Using a combination of traditional and modern upholstery techniques and materials.
A chair with a drop in seat pad will be provided (yours to take home) along with everything you need for the day including coffee and cake
Welcome refreshments and discussion on technique for the day
We will have done the dirty work for you and removed all the old fabric, tacks and staples
You can immediately start the process to re-build the pad. Including the correct use of tools for webbing etc.
Once the seat pad has its ground work completed
We’ll take a short break and enjoy coffee and cake
We’ll start by applying Dacron.
Then applying Fire retardant calico
We are then ready for the top layer of fabric
Finishing with Diprol on the underside of the pad.
The final fabric can be chosen from the collection we have in stock.
Or if you prefer, you are welcome to bring your own fabric but it must be suitable for this process.
