1930s Queen Mary Ocean Liner Project

Inspired by a photo seen on a visit to the Warner Textile Archive, students at the Upholstery Skills Centre have brought back to life a 1930s chair from on board the Queen Mary Ocean Liner. With just a couple of old photos to work from, they have made and French polished the frame, designed the fabric, traditionally upholstered the chair and filmed the whole process.
