Parker Knoll chairs - much beloved of more mature folks - are enjoying a style revival. Yet these super-comfy family favourites have a unique frame anatomy, making them quite baffling for the novice upholsterer. This four-day course is designed specifically to tackle the unique design of the Parker Knoll chair and will include: the upholstered PK seat front, back-tacking onto bent show-wood arms (not a tacking rail in sight!), rebuilding and covering the PK scroll arm, making quilted covers for PK tension springs, and making T-shaped box cushions. The course will be organised as a series of masterclass workshops, one day a week over four weeks. Students should bring their own Parker Knoll chair to work on. Due to the time consuming nature of the training, it is expected that students will have work to do in between classes.

Tools and all stuffing materials will be available for use on the course. Please note: we need a minimum number of bookings to run this course.
