Upholstery leisure classes

Are you a creative enthusiast and would like to try your hand at upholstery? Flamingo Upholstery’s leisure classes are a great opportunity to transform your own piece of furniture and to learn new skills!

Classes are small (maximum of 3 students at a time) and flexible. You choose when and how many classes you want to book in for!

In my fully equipped workshop, I will guide you through your project, from stripping the upholstery down to building it up again and upholster the top fabric. You can purchase all the upholstery materials you need to rebuild your chair or stool from the workshop, so there is no need to source it yourself! You can bring your own fabric, though I have some remnants you can choose from or sample books you can order from.

Evening leisure classes

This is your chance to give your old piece of furniture a new lease of life and see if upholstery is for you! Come for one, two or more classes, whatever suits you and your project best.

On Wednesday evenings, from 6 pm till 9 pm, you can bring your own small piece of furniture to re-upholster. A drop-in seat, foot stool, piano stool, or something similar is ideal to start with. You will create a completely new look, ready to be admired and used.

Materials needed can be purchased through the workshop on the day. You may need to bring your own fabric if you want to complete on the day of class. Unfortunately, your furniture can not be stored in the workshop in between classes, due to shortage of workshop space.

Places are limited to 3 people per evening, so booking in advance is necessary to secure a place. Contact me me for further information and booking.

Costs: £25 per evening.

Upholstery weekend day classes

From time to time, I also run day classes on a Saturday and/or Sunday. These days are ideal for bigger projects, such as arm chairs, headboards and deep buttoned foot stools. If you are interested in a day leisure class, please Contact me.

Cost: £65 per day.

If you love the look of these cocktail chairs, you can upholster one yourself!  I will provide the frame and all the materials to build up your chair- all you need to do is bring or buy 2 meters of fabric. Book in for around 6 evening classes or 3 day classes. Costs: £160 for frame and materials- class fee and fabric is additional. Contact for further details.
