Know how to handle tools correctly to avoid damage to wood and themselves.
Know why each tool and material is used for specific steps.
Understand different materials used for the modern upholstery of a footstool/ottoman/stool.

Be competent at all stages, the result being a completed footstool/ottoman/stool and understanding of its make- up

All the tools we use are basic and easy to buy for your own projects at home. Skills gained at the workshop will be a great starting point for many more of your own projects!

At the end of the sessions, you will have gained an understanding of all the stages required when upholstering a footstool. You even get to take home it home with you and show off to all your friends and family!
