My upholstery classes are focussed on you, the student.  My task is to assist you to achieve your goals and learn as much as possible about this rewarding craft.  I also want to make the day as enjoyable as possible.

Many people keen to learn upholstery attend night classes but after a while find that the short time available to work and get answers to questions, is limiting their progress.  Feedback from students suggests that full day classes are more productive and therefore rewarding. 

If however, you cannot manage full days and would be interested in an evening class then please let me know here.  If I receive enough interest I will consider the option of an evening class.

Upholstery Workshop Information.

  • There will be no more than 3 students in each upholstery class.

  • The cost is £65 per day (materials available to purchase).

  • Gift Vouchers are available, which make thoughtful presents.

A little more detail
  • Bring a piece of furniture which is structurally sound and ready for upholstery.

  • Your piece of furniture does not need to be stripped of upholstery before the class as there is a lot to be learned during this stage.

  • Bring along your upholstery weight top fabric or get in touch if you need help.

  • There is no set structure to the class.  Each student is encouraged to work at a pace to suit themselves and their project.

  • Past students have managed to re-upholster a basic dining chair or a piano stool in one day.  Others visit regularly to complete larger projects.

  • We'll have refreshments and snacks but please bring a packed lunch.
