November 24th & 25th in Llanarthne
Two day course £326
Two day workshop with Mick. Learn from the great Master himself and upholster a drop-in seat using Welsh woollen fabrics from a choice of Melin Tregwynt and Cambrian Wool.
We’ve had great fun buying a whole load of lovely chairs from a local auction. You’ll be able to choose your chair before the course commences. Learn to de-construt the old chair and re-upholster it, using tools such as hammers, tack removers, ballots pliers and a webbing stretcher. You’ll be stuffing the seat by hand with horse hair. The seat will be covered by you in a gorgeous Welsh woollen fabric of your choice.
What will the course involve?
• Two days of professional upholstery tuition from Mick Sheridan
• The chair and all materials required to upholster it are included in your ticket price
• A spacious work area is allocated to each student along with your own range of upholstery tools to use while you’re here
• A plentiful supply of tea, coffee and afternoon cake is provided. Delicious, wholesome lunches are available to order and purchase from Henllys.
“This was an excellent course. Mick was a brilliant teacher, lots of time for each of us as well as teaching us in groups too. He is a perfectionist and equally wanted us to achieve perfection. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and the company of the others in the group. It was a very inclusive and supportive group with the bonus of fun too. Thank you to Suzi too, I received a lovely welcome from her plus she provided us all with regular refreshments.” – Susan
“Excellent course. Well paced, learnt a lot and went home with a piece of furniture that I could be really proud of. Although Mick says he’s not a teacher, he is good at explaining, and has a very good sense of when to intervene and when to let you get on with it. You make something under close guidance step-by-step, but feel that you have completed the article yourself. Highly recommended.” – Fiona
