These are skills you can use forever.
An upcoming series of fun workshops will show you how to upcycle old lamps, chairs and cushions for a fraction of the cost of buying trendy new pieces.
Master upholsterer Annette Leeman from Glenbower House will be leading a series of full-day workshops in November at the Fabric Outlet in Douglas.
Kicking off at 10am until 4.30pm, lunch is included in the ticket price so it’s a brilliant excuse to make a day of it and learn some handy skills in a relaxed atmosphere.

- November 2nd, 2019: Chair upholstery: Learn to fully reupholster an occasional chair (the chair is supplied and yours to take home!) Cost: €135
