Upholstery weekender “chair fest” 7th-8th March
Forget Glastonbury or Reading ….who needs that when you can spend a weekend with me swearing and laughing in the Glam Chicken Shed just outside of Bristol making the greatest chair ever!! If that’s not living your best life I don’t what is😂
This is your chance to delve a little deeper in to upholstery and experience the horror of stripping nails and staples out of a chair in order to professionally reupholster it….the saying “misery loves company” has never been truer than when doing this! But we can swear and sweat together because when you cradle your shiny new chair in your arms on the journey home and stroke your lovely upholstery you will have forgotten the pain involved😂
All you need to bring is a sense of humour and a metre of fabric.
