HEICO FASTENERS CHAIR DESIGN COMPETITION
We would like to pass on our warmest congratulations to our student Caroline Brookes for being one of the runners up in the Heico 2020 Chair Design Competition. The Competition was open to all students attending AMUSF Training Centres in the UK to gain their Diploma in Upholstery. It was exciting to see how Caroline's chair evolved from being a concept design on her mood board to becoming a fully functional miniature chair. It was not only amazing to look at but innovative too with built in storage compartments in the arms. Well deserved and well done Caroline!
Apart from my passion for teaching upholstery, I also like to work on my own traditional 'pet' projects. One of these is a small shell-back chair which I purchased over a year ago. This particular chair has a wooden frame and although generally in good condition required a some work to strengthen lose joints before starting. More photographs of progress to follow . . .
