    Times: 11.00-5.00
    Duration: 2 days Sat & Sun
    Includes: Everything you need to make the footstool except 1 metre of fabric and fire retardant interliner if required

    This is the weekend version of our highly sought after deep buttoned footstool. This is a 2 day deep buttoning masterclass. Starting day one with a brand new frame and choice of legs, you will kick off by painting or waxing your legs to match your chosen fabric. After attaching your foam you will then be introduced to the world of deep buttoning. We will show you how to work out the maths behind the placement of buttons but on this introductory course we will have done all of this for you. Working to a template provided by us (think sewing pattern), you will mark out your fabric for the buttoning process to commence. You will then get to make your very own buttons. Then it’s on with the buttoning, pleating and corners. Finally your bottom cover and legs. You will walk away with your completed stool, a load of transferable skills and a real sense of achievement about what you have achieved in just two days.

    The approx. finished upholstered size of the stool will be:
    Width: 48cm
    Length: 61cm

    This course is suitable for complete beginners and those with some basic experience, who want to add deep buttoning their repertoire. 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 ideal if you just want an awesome one-off stool for your home at a fraction of the cost of buying one!

    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 when not teaching at the Manchester school, can often be seen moonlighting on several TV programmes! Led by Anthony Devine, you will follow the step by step tuition, making this stool from scratch from a bare solid hardwood frame. 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 and applying borders. 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!
