Is Upholstery for You?
These one day upholstery courses are on Sunday 5 October or Saturday 18 October from 10am to 4.30pm
This is a great opportunity to find out whether you would enjoy learning more about upholstery and beginners are very welcome. We work to professional standards using traditional methods.
During the course you will learn how to reupholster a small piece of furniture such as a footstool, dining chair with drop in seat, or a piano stool. (Please remember you need to bring a Footstool, Dining Chair with drop in seat or Piano Stool, with all the old material removed
(No Wobbly Joints Please)
Two tutors will make sure you have all the help you need. Just bring your piece of furniture with all the old materials removed (making sure there are no wobbly joints) and your new fabric. Be aware that if your frame includes plywood or mdf, this could be difficult to work with, so “proper” wood frames are best.
This course costs £95 and includes use of all tools and additional materials such as webbing, black felt, calico, tacks etc.
There is an excellent tea room at Cockenzie House for reviving tea, coffee and lunch.

"A Tranquil Place "
"I accessed from the rear, via The John Muir Walk, where there is a lift to all floors, and went to the first floor Café for coffee and home made cake (well you have to) which was delicious!! and overlooks the peaceful wild garden. Such a lovely setting and the volunteering staff members made me feel very welcome. "
