The 50s and 60s produced some amazingly designed and well built pieces of furniture. I search out those pieces that have languished for decades: armchairs that have been climbed over by generations of children and grand-children and attacked by family pets of all kinds; bookcases and shelves that have been knocked into, tipped over and moved from family home to student flat and back again. I re-paint, re-upholster and re-imagine these forgotten relics and transform them into beautiful, modern and functional pieces ready for another 60 years of love and appreciation!
Mad4Mod will be offering a range of fun, do-able upholstery workshops to teach you the basic skills you need to tackle a range of reupholstery projects at home. Each workshop will cover a different set of upholstery skills, slowly but surely building your know-how and confidence. If you've always wanted to give upholstery a go but didn't know where to start...start here!
Mad4Mod's next workshop will be held at 12b Parata Street in Waikanae - behind Picture Perfect Framing. Off-street parking is available at the rear.
