Could someone please recommend a good furniture restoration or upholstery course. All the courses that I've come accross seem to be in the west of Ireland and as I'm based in Wexford thats no use. I don't mind travelling to Dublin/Waterford/Carlow/Kilkenny. If someone has done a good course I'd love to hear about is.
Did you find a course nearby in the end? I am having the same difficulty now.
hoping to start an upholstery courses in Waterford in the next month - was wondering if anyone else was doing it
Hi tj123, Im living in Waterford and interested in doing an upholstery course, could you tell me where and when the course is on? Ive been searching the internet for courses around the south east area but they seem to mostly be held in the west of Irl.
I would also be interested in this course so would love more info about it.
hey i recently did a course in gorey community school in furniture restoration. it was tip top the guy teaching was A1 and actually qualified and working full time in restoration. he helped us source tools materials the whole lot from start to finish even now pop him an email he will help u out.
I have been searching for a course but no joy, could you tell me where you are doing yours?
sorry I didn't get back sooner - the details changed but finally the courses are going ahead - there are 2 courses being run in the waterford college of further education - mon and tue nights - one is in traditional upholstery and you bring your own furniture to upholster and the tue one is a course in making a headboard - everything is provided except the fabric so theoy should be fun - also if anyone is interested there will be courses starting for a qualification in upholstery also in waterford, where you can work through the 3 certs to become a junior upholsterer
I'll let you know about the details when I find out
Hope this is helpful
Hi there. who is giving the courses and how much do they cost? thanks
The courses are being run by the Waterford College of Further education, Parnell St., and are given by M&T Upholstery. The courses cost 165euro and you can register online at www.wcfe.ie
Have registered for the Traditional Upholstery course due to start in CTI next week but course may not be going ahead as only 5 people have registered. Last day for applying is today
Hi, anyone know of a decent restoration course in Dublin? Would aim to start one in September if possible.
Has anyone taken a course in Dublin (Kildare would suit either) and if so would they recommend it?
Hi just wondered if anybody knew of an upholstery course running in Dublin. Just bought an old chair and want to do it up. Does anyone know of any good material shop which sell good fabric for upholstering my chair thanks Geraldine
theres a 6 week course run by Busy Bees Recycling on Crumlin Road....starting in September and held on Saturdays, costs €100.00....they're in the process of moving premises, so I'm not sure where it will end up being run. They also do a 6 week part time course in soft furnishings.
Looking to do an upcycling / upholstery course -part-time or evening time. Anyone any suggestions please
