Making this DIY craft couldn't be easier when you have help from talented teachers. You will learn via a virtual class where all you need is an internet connection, a flat surface, your craft box, and a few inexpensive tools.

This online craft workshop has been very carefully crafted to make it totally accessible to beginners wishing to learn basic upholstery skills.

We are coming directly to your screen for a day of creativity, education and most importantly: fun! It's an enjoyable thing to make at home that will wow all future guests.


Knowledge Required

The course is designed as a fun one day workshop where participants make their own footstool from start to finish. It's busy, hands on activity day and the final outcome makes for a satisfying action day project!

  • Foam.
  • Polyester.
  • Can of upholstery glue.
  • Fabric of your choice.
  • Legs and fittings.
  • Buttons made in your fabric choice.

What you'll need
You will be required to provide a few things of your own:
