The footstool frames have been crafted by Steve Thomas of Creek Furniture, (Orange NSW) using traditional joinery methods. Steve is a lover & collector of timber, which he acquires through myriad of sources, including old shed and farmhouse demolitions. He delights in the provenance of his materials and often notates its’ origins inside the frames of the pieces that he makes.

The workshop will be taught by Fiona Edmeades of Reign of Chairs. Fiona studied traditional upholstery in London and ran an upholstery business for several years before moving to Australia in the late 90’s.

Fiona and Steve run upholstery and furniture restoration workshops across NSW under the name of We Us and Stuff.
