This weekend course serves as an excellent introduction to upholstery whilst also offering you the opportunity to make a beautiful and incredibly stylish stool. The stool was designed by our Creative Director Anthony Devine, who also appears on BBC’s Money for Nothing. Anthony also teaches this class. You will work in a small group of no more than 8 students and following the step by step tuition of Athony, you will make this stool from scratch from a bare solid hardwood frame, constructed in-house in our frame workshop. This course covers some of the same techniques as our weekend  footstool course, such as webbing, cutting foam, applying Hessian and wadding, but also covers different techniques like making and applying piping, applying borders and cutting from a pattern. You will also have a choice of paints and waxes to finish your legs to match your fabric. Everything is included in this course apart from 1 metre of fabric. You can choose from two different sizes for this course. Both stools are the perfect size and height for a dressing table or desk for example.

The approx. finished upholstered size of the stools is as follows:

Small:
Height: 47cm
Depth: 39.5cm
Length: 53.5cm

Large
Height: 47cm
Depth: 39.5cm
Length: 76.5cm

This course is suitable for complete beginners and those with some basic experience. It serves as an excellent introduction to the tools and materials used and as a perfect taster if you’re thinking about one of our longer courses. It’s also perfect if you just want an awesome one off stool for your home at a fraction of the cost of buying one as, at the end of the day, the stool is yours to take home and admire! Or alternatively you could sell it to pay for your next course because trust us, you will be addicted!

    I had a great time, learned loads and walked away with a beautiful piece of furniture which is worth far more than the price of the course.

    On the course I attended there were two other students both. We all had varying levels of experience which wasn’t a problem for Anthony, the course tutor. I was pretty much a complete novice and found some of the techniques easy and others difficult but managed them all with varying levels of support. The course was relaxed but certainly a full two days. I would very much recommend the course and now just have to decide which one to do next.

    I had a fantastic time on this course, I was a complete beginner but, with the help and support of Anthony I surprised myself by producing a lovely piece of furniture which I’m proud to have in my home. The atmosphere on the course was very friendly and Susie and Anthony quickly put me at ease. Anthony is an excellent teacher and clearly explained each individual stage of creating the stool before, I then worked on my stool with his support. Both Anthony & Susie create a great learning environment that is friendly and fun with lots of tunes, tea and biscuits along the way, they are both generous with their time and knowledge. Don’t hesitate if you’re thinking of booking – you’ll learn lots and have a great time. I can’t wait to return for another course.

    I have just finished an amazing weekend at The Ministry of Upholstery. I recieved this course as a birthday present and it will be one I remember with much pleasure.
    I made this classy stool to a very high standard and this was purely down to the excellent support Anthony and Paul gave me over the two days. The practical advice and attentive support was totally needed by me but they didn’t take over; thank you for that. If you are clueless, as I was, this course is a must as a step into upholstery, if not just an very enjoyable weekend. Thank you
