Malacca Chair & Couch Making


Inspired by the cafe culture of Jonker Street, we’ve designed these upholstered chairs and couches as a compliment to the fine woodwork taught at our Mandai workshop. This entry level project is perfect for those interested in learning woodworking and upholstery. While the emphasis is on sewing and foaming, there is a significant portion of wood carving and basic lap joinery. It is less strenous than all-wood projects, but requires more focus due to the sewing components.

Time commitment

4 hours a week for 8 weeks.

Project coverage

60 days unlimited workshop usage for completing the project.

Make a single seater chair or two seater couch.

Our two-seater couch is available as a 2 pax project, and would be perfect for couples or families. Do note that 2 students working on a single couch would impose some restrictions on equipment, instructor attention and space, especially during weekends. If you would like to have a perfect learning experience for both students, you might want to consider signing up for 2 x single seater.
