Introducing the Skills Chair! Look closely at the pictures and you’ll notice that this chair is a little unusual! We have designed this course to allow the student to pack in as many skills as possible in as shorter time as possible! As with all of our courses, this is aimed at beginners and you will begin day one with a full health & safety induction, where we will introduce you to the pneumatic staple gun. Once you feel comfortable we will provide you with your brand new wingback chair frame, made by our team of expert frame-makers. We will then guide you step-by-step through each process until your chair is ready to take home. Throughout the 10 days’ duration of this course you will complete the following skills and techniques:

  • Building up a chair using webbing, hessian and foam
  • Scroll arm with a studded facing
  • Cap on arm with piping
  • Cap on wing with patchwork sewing techniques and shallow buttoning
  • Button making
  • Scroll wing with facing design
  • Deep buttoned back
  • Piped seat cushion with zip
  • Close nail studding
  • Making piping
  • Sewing skills
  • Template making
  • Cutting
  • Using modern upholstery materials such as backtack strip, plygrip and profile roll
  • How to make a scatter cushion

This course is available to book on any 10 weekdays and runs from 9.00-4.00. Please select the week you would like to commence the course from the dropdown box and we will be in touch to finalise your dates.

If you wish to spread the course over more than two weeks, then please do contact us via phone or email to discuss availability.

Please note that 10 days is the average completion time for this course but we do not guarantee that you will finish in 10 days as everyone works at different speeds. If you do need an extra day these are chargeable at £85/ day.
