Our photographer and web master Debbie Harris of 2up came along to Retrorecyclers last week to renovate one of her old chairs at one of our taster sessions – here is how she got on!
After photographing a taster session at Retro recylers last week I was inspired to returen with a little project of my own – an old mahogany chair that has been languishing in our loft for many years. Over the course of the morning I set to work transforming the chair into something a little bit better with the help of Sue from Sue’s upholstery who runs the classes. She was a great teacher – encouraging me whilst making sure that I did everything properly (I had to unpick one part as it wasn’t up to scratch!). It was a lovely way to spend a morning and great to do something hands on in the real, rather than the virtual, world. Hopefully you will agree that the finished chair is a great improvement – I think there are one or two more in the loft so I will be back to do more!
