Why not learn a new skill in a weekend?

I am delighted to announce that I am launching a series of weekend courses at the British School of Upholstered Furniture at Nettlebed in Oxfordshire.  The first one will be held on 14th/15th October 2017 and will be aimed at complete beginners. On the first day we will cover lots of different techniques including:

  •           * Making simple cords
  •           * Decorative whipping
  •           * Tassels – knotted, pop-up and other shapes
  •           * Buttons – using wooden moulds and ruffs
  •           * Adding stripes
  •           * Decorative ruffs
  •           * Netting

By the end of day one you will have a handful of different shaped little tassels and covered buttons. On day two we will put all those techniques together to make a complete project of a naturalistic acorn as used on the beautiful four poster bed at Marchmont House.

The School is based in a delightful wooden clad barn with parking on site. The course runs from 9.30 to 4.30 each day and the fee covers all materials, equipment and lunch.
