Introduction to Woodworking and Upholstery.
The Malacca Series currently comprise a chair and a couch. Each is made with a rigid lap-jointed frame with hand sculpted arm rests, and an upholstered back and seat. With an emphasis on two styles of upholstery, each project covers the production of a zippered cushion and also a stapled fixed-upholstery method that combines wood, foam and fabric. You’d be using bandsaws, tablesaws, hand tools and also industrial lockstitch machines. This will equip you with foundational skills for future furniture projects.
Next batch starting March 2019.
