2019: UPHOLSTERY – WINDSOR CASTLE, BERKSHIRE

Venue: Windsor Castle

Workshop Information

This is the second year that The Creative Dimension Trust has had the fantastic opportunity to run a workshop within the grounds of the historic Windsor Castle. This particular workshop will take place at the newly built Conservation Workshop.

You will learn the traditional craft of upholstery with the Royal Household upholsterer/conservator. Upholstery is the craft of providing seat furniture with padding, springs, webbing and fabric or leather covers. It is a traditional craft but is just as relevant today as it has ever been; for example, with the surge in people ‘upcyling’ furniture, it is a special skill to learn which will allow you to put your own creative stamp on items.

Transferable Skills and Future Careers

All of our workshops provide you with the valuable chance to learn transferable skills. This is a great workshop for anyone who is also interested in learning some of the skills required for careers in fashion, textile design, and theatre set design (to name a few).

Eligibility Criteria

This workshop is for four students between the ages of 16 to 18. You will also need to undertake an interview process to attend this workshop.

Please be sure that you have read our Eligibility Criteria, Selection, and Applications section at the bottom of the Workshop page before applying
