THE STOOL FRAME

The stool frame is a modern, finished frame made of birchwood. It looks great as it is, or paint it in a colour when you get home.
The frame is 45cm high, and the seat is 45cm by 29cm.

HALF WAY THROUGH

You'll learn how to build up layers of comfy and durable padding with a calico cover. Then secure it all to the stool using a variety traditional and modern tools, including a magnetic upholstery hammer, tacks and a staple gun.

FINISHED STOOL PAD

Finally, you'll cover the stool pad with your own choice of top fabric, create neat corners and finish with a back lining. Everyone leaves with a completed stool! Past attendees have used stools for  bedrooms or sitting rooms, for kids, as gifts, as sewing stools...
