Janet Queen has gardened in the north-west of Scotland, England and Italy. Her talk is based on experiences in all three locations and, although the general theme is gardening and great garden design, she also touches on cultural and lifestyle aspects of each area.

4 pm | Duration 45 minutes | Talk: ‘Designer Headboards’ with Stephen Ball of Stephen Ball Upholstery

Stephen will give the attendees an insight into designing and making their own beautiful headboard. He will talk about the tools and equipment required, the components and where to buy them and the best fabrics to use. He will give a stage by stage demonstration of making a headboard. Stephen became a professional upholsterer after a life changing accident in 1999 until then he was a passionate amateur. Since that time he has worked on all sizes of project from restoring a pair of antique bellows to a refurbishment of Underscar Manor with a two-week deadline for Queen Elizabeth’s visit. His work varies considerably between re-upholstery of contemporary furniture, renovation of antiques, vintage cars, caravans, boats and commercial work, creating and refurbishing furniture for hotels, restaurants, inns and bars. He also designs and makes bespoke furniture. His workshop is based in Cliburn.
