Here’s some examples of how we’ve used it on projects.
Have a practice with single piping, once you’ve mastered this you can move onto double piping. This is a great finish for projects that need raw stapled edge covering, or next to bare wood.
Are you feeling anxious about having a go yourself? If you would rather have a go with an expert to guide you, why don’t you come and try it out for yourself at our upholstery workshop? The benefits are all the tools and materials are provided for you in a safe environment. You will be provided with full training by Emma an experienced upholsterer, who started it out as a hobby. So you get an opportunity to ask all the questions you like from someone who has shared a similar experience. You will be amazed at the results that you can achieve.
Nigel created a new stool for his home learning the new skill of single piping. He had had started doing a few small projects at home, but wanted to have a go with an expert in a safe environment where he could ask questions, grow his confidence & skills. The end result was brilliant and he shared some kind words about his experience. “Had a fantastic time on the footstool workshop. Very friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Lots of new skills learned and I ended up with a new piece of furniture that I am really proud of. Thanks Emma for a brilliant experience”.
