For Beginners

with Jaqueline Donachie


An exciting class for those new to upholstery or continuing with a current Forgan project. Jacqueline will guide you through a variety of techniques and introduce you to the equipment needed for a small upholstery project. There is a limited number of tools available at the centre for the class to share. You may choose to invest in your own along the way. To get started you will need a measuring tape, tailors chalk, fabric scissors and to bring along a piece of furniture to work on. Don’t worry this needn’t be expensive.

If you need advice on a suitable project or where to source furniture, you can contact your tutor at: and she will be more than happy to assist.
