Come and get hands on with this upholstery workshop where you’ll learn to sculpt and crimp foam, stretch and fold fabric to create a padded seat for a milk crate.

You’ll experience the sheer satisfaction of physical creation, recalling the human and artistic elements of production that’s often glossed over in today’s age of mass digital fabrication.

You’ll get insights into the realities and processes of furniture production in this exercise in tactility and perspective. Hands on Upholstery is a social event chock full of peers and a great opportunity to discuss the value of hand production, bespoke design and local objects.

Maaike has been teaching Cowboy Upholstery for 4 years, working with the community to improve hand skills and tool confidence while repairing broken furniture. Furniture Resurrection has featured in SMH Spectrum, Green Magazine, and Wellbeing Magazine’s Natural Home Special Edition.
