2 Day workshop with Master Upholsterer Gareth Rees

HOW TO CREATE A PERIOD FINISH USING MODERN MATERIALS


Proportion and shape are two of the most important ideals alongside technique and quality of materials when producing traditional period work, however when using modern materials these proportions are most likely to be overlooked. In this workshop with Gareth, students will be looking at various ways of creating a period finish using foam and staples rather than hair, twine and tacks. Students will produce two samples mirroring those being done in the traditional manner in the workshops with Greg and Armand.

TRADITIONAL TOP WEBBED, STITCHED UP SEAT.



The frame for this workshop is a traditional French curved seat with a beautiful serpentine front edge. However, during this workshop with Greg it will be English upholstery techniques all the way! Students will learn about stitching on a curve and how to achieve that perfectly proportioned seat using blind and top stitches with a horsehair filling. Some students may get time to cover their seat with top fabric and trim.

DOSSIER A CHAPEAU



During this workshop with Armand, students will learn the upholstery processes of the 'Dossier a Chapeau'.

Students will be upholstering a trapezoidal chair back frame using French traditional techniques. Despite this shape not being commonly used in the US it does include the corner stitch as well as angled and tapered shaping, all of which can be used on Louis XVI (1774-1785) and Empire style furniture.

Depending on the individual student, the back will then be covered in both muslin and top fabric.
