You will leave the workshop with a retail quality footstool that you have made yourself to be enjoyed in your own home or as a gift for a loved one!
Workshops will be from 10am til 4pm (approx), tea, coffee and cakes are included; recommendations are provided for lunches at lovely local cafes and restaurants.
Workshop participants can choose to bring their own fabric or choose from a wide range of wools fabrics from Abraham Moon, fabrics from J Brown or a range of cotton animal prints (e.g. stags, pheasants, bees etc as seen on Crafted Home Décor!).
Make a Footstool in a Day workshop prices start from 100 for a small footstool (450x 300× 300mm including leg of 150mm) in customers own fabric, up to 140 for a small footstool in Abraham Moon. Bespoke sizes can be made, just call to discuss your idea.
