‘TAKE A SEAT’ – Learn upholstery skills with Nicola Parkes
A taster workshop & demonstration on upholstery with Nicola Parkes – master upholsterer in both modern and traditional techniques.
This one-off session will includes the seat for you to work on to test your skills. The chair is yours to keep. The 4 hour workshop will include a short demonstration by Nicola with different styles/sizes/shapes she has worked on.
You will then be taken through the steps to reupholster your own chair: stripping – rewebbing – adding tarpaulin – padding – calico cover – top cloth. All tools and materials are provided within the cost to reupholster 1 seat pad on the provided chair (dining chair style).

Nicola is wonderful and so knowledgeable. She should run more classes!
First ever upholstery class and really enjoyed it. I will be back for more. Thanks!
Nicola offers great practical tips and support. Really enjoyable course to complete at your own pace. Loved it!
The (OTSemporium) upholstery courses is a small group; very relaxed & you have the space focus on your project or stop and have a cup of tea. Whether you have dappled in upholstery before or a complete novice like me, Nicola is there to provide you with the skills to complete your project to a high standard, where you are able to step back and think ‘did I really achieve this?!’ No project is too big or too small as Nicola is there to direct you every step of the way.
