Ideal for beginners and the more experienced
Every chair eventually needs refurbishing; perhaps just a new top cover, but often more major work right to its foundations. But just how do you go about it?
Anne Brock is an upholstery and soft furnishing teacher who has taught many hundreds of students in technical colleges, schools and evening classes. She makes it all very easy, whether you are upholstering your chair in the modern method using foam, or traditionally using hair and hessian. She lets you into many of the shortcuts and tricks which she has been teaching her students over the years. She guides you through the seemingly alarming process of upholstery step-by-step, explaining how every tack is hammered in correctly and every stitch sewn.
This beautifully illustrated book will be of great value to students embarking on a City and Guilds Soft Furnishing or Upholstery course, as well as to those wishing to enjoy upholstery as a rewarding hobby.
