Monday 31 August, 6.30-8.30pm, Exploring upholstered chair design with Nigel Cook

Come and join in this session to learn about designing a chair and in doing so explore the many possibilities of upholstery. 

Upholsterer Nigel Cook will share a design process that considers an array of different elements of upholstered chairs. This will give you an opportunity to design your own chair or contribute to a group design.  This knowledge may also be useful for other uses of upholstery too.

We’ll be working with resourcefulness in mind, working to create to designs that enable as much reuse as possible. 

You don’t need to know anything about upholstery or how to design, this is simply a chance to enjoy exploring ideas within this craft. 

 Hot drinks & cake provided. 

Bookings will close on August 17th to allow Nigel time to prepare for this session, so please book prior to then.

There are 20 places available in this workshop.

Minimum numbers are required for the class to run.

Bookings are essential, non-refundable and non-transferable. We do, however, understand that things come up and try and accommodate people to the best of our ability. This can include moving people to another class or a refund - but please be aware that this is reliant on us filling the original spot.

This is because all of our pricing, and our efforts to keep costs as low as possible while still paying the tutors a fee commensurate with their experience and allowing them to cover the costs of living, is based on running these classes with a certain number of participants.

We are grateful to be able to offer this workshop in a partially subsidised manner because of support from Creative New Zealand, and from Te Matatiki Toi Ora the Arts Centre.
