Want to create something different? Not quite a sofa, better than a stool; this unique frame was designed by our Creative Director; Anthony Devine for BBC’s Money for Nothing and quickly nicknamed the #stofa! It became so popular with our regular students, that we introduced it as a course and it has fast become one of our firm favourites due to the creative nature of the design and the variety of different ways it can be approached!

You will start the course by customising your legs to match your fabric choice, from a range of paints and waxes provided by us. You will then be taken through a thorough health & safety induction, during which you will be introduced to the pneumatic staple gun and shown how to safely operate it. After you are up to speed it is on with the upholstery. You will require no previous experience as Anthony will be leading this workshop and will guide you, step by step, through the exact process he used to make the TV ‘Stofa’!

You will learn a lot of techniques, from webbing, applying hessian, working with foam, cutting and applying fabric and this is also our first weekend course which can include an introduction to basic sewing! Class sizes will be kept small to maximise teaching time and at the end of the two days, the #stofa is yours to take home and enjoy! It is a very creative course as it can be upholstered in lots of different ways and using different methods and skills. Please have a look at the pictures to see how other students have approached the design for some inspiration. Full guidance on fabric will be sent in the booking confirmation.

The #stofa measures approx.:

  • 1 metre 17cm in length
  • 50cm wide
  • 37cm in height

    Absolutely excellent course. Knew nothing of upholstery and can be a bit dim with materials but had a great time. The stofa itself is very comfortable and is used all the time. Well pleased. Plus there’s good instruction, nice people & loads of tea and biscuits!
