This workshop is an amazing introduction to upholstery and gives you the opportunity to create and style your very own vintage chair using chalk paint which is yours to take home and cherish for many more years to come.
The first part of the workshop will include the painting of your chair and selecting your colour to match your fabric and then have fun choosing from various painting techniques all of which will be demonstrated to you which include:
Solid flat painted finish Distressed or two-toned finish Textured finish Add additional detail including stenciling or gilding waxes.
You will get step by step guidance and demonstrations through each stage of your seat panel upholstery construction and we will ensure you gain all the knowledge and confidence to tackle similar projects at home.
Materials provided include: Vintage Chair Webbing Hessian Foam Dacron Calico Bottom Cloth All Paint, Waxes and other decorative materials
