    Detailed programme


    With the help of an upholsterer with 25 years experience, you will learn traditional techniques.
    Each participant will learn the various stages in the stuffing and covering of an armchair. At the end of the workshop you will be able to upholster an armchair on your own.

    This workshop is for people wishing to learn this art. The method involves a longer learning than the modern method but it is interesting because it allows partial repairs in the case of restorations. In addition, it uses natural and cheap materials.

    For the work of the carcass: Two possibilities:
    - On loan for the duration of the internship. Models are optimum for learning. Participants can buy the armchair which they upholster for cost price (300 €)
    - Bring your own carcass: The seat must be completely or partially bald. Sometimes it has to be repaired before starting the workshop.

    For the upholstery: bring your own or choose one at the studio.
