BEGINNERS IN MODERN UPHOLSTERY Tutor: Mary Gibson CODE 528

5 Sessions Jan 25th, Feb 8th and 22nd, March 8th and 22nd Fri 9.00 - 13.00 Fee £ 110.00 no concessions

This course of five, 4 hour sessions on alternate weeks takes you through the basics of modern upholstery learning how to strip a small piece of furniture and use trade tools to reupholster it professionally. Working on your own project, materials will be available to purchase from the tutor at the classes however attendees should supply their own top fabric (suitable fabrics will be discussed and measurements taken in the first session). A small selection of your own tools will be necessary, all of which are likely to be in your tool box already. We suggest a small project i.e. footstool or chair with one upholstered surface. Please bear in mind your piece will need to be transported to the class each week, and there are four shallow steps to access the room. Please bring a rubber mat or blanket on which to place your furniture during the class. Moderate physical strength required, and you will be standing for most of each session.

Please note only modern upholstery materials and techniques will be used on this course, and a photo or description of your chosen piece will be required to make sure it’s not too big a project for the time available!

STAINED GLASS                                                                                                     Tutor: Teri Lockton

Students will learn to cut glass to a pattern (or “cartoon”), lead up the glass into a stained glass panel, solder all of the joins and waterproof the panel by using leaded light cement.  We will also learn how to design for stained glass and students can then embark on their own projects.  Those who wish can also learn the copper foil technique, invented by Louis Tiffany and now familiar to us in “Tiffany” lamps and lightcatchers.  There will be many books available to inform and inspire you. Tools will be available for students’ use at the beginning of the class and then, for those of you who wish to carry on the skills learnt, a list of tools to purchase and suggested suppliers will be available.  I look forward to welcoming you to the class!
