Date: 23rd March

Time: 10.30am - 4pm


*Please note that some arm/ hand strength is a benefit for this workshop as fabrics will need to be applied under pressue and can put pressure on hands in particular.

The skills you can expect to learn are; webbing, using tacks to attach hessian, cutting and securing foam, using fabric and trimmings to cover and finish.
