This one day class gives you an introduction to all of the basic skills and techniques of upholstery, through making your own footstool. You’ll gain an insight into those ‘tricks of the trade’ which achieve a professional finish.

Graham & Sons is a small firm founded in 1952, specialising in high-quality upholstery for both residential and commercial clients, in the Wairarapa and Wellington regions. There is a maximum of 6 places available for each Saturday, with one tutor per three students. Both tutors are partners in the business and bring a wealth of experience and design flair to help you achieve a good result.

The morning session is spent going through the factory using the various machinery, especially the sewing machines, and covering a base board. In the afternoon, you choose fabric from our stock, and then cut foam, cut and sew the fabric, sew the cover and cover the footstool. Then your masterpiece is yours to take home!

$50 deposit required to secure your place, please note this is non-refundable if you cancel with less than 24 hours notice and we are unable to fill the place from the waiting list.

Class will run on Saturday and/or Sunday depending on bookings, call 06 306 9551 or email to book:
