Join us for one of our fascinating workshops as we delve into the fabulous world of upholstery.
Professional upholsterers Louise Richardson, Rachael South, Jan Dodd ,Sally Mollett and Polly Waite teach a selection of non-accredited upholstery courses – each will give you a wonderful introduction to this traditional and practical craft and leave you with the confidence and skills to tackle new projects on your own.
All of our upholstery classes are for absolute beginners. It doesn’t matter which one you choose to take first. Each technique that is taught is part of the portfolio of processes that every upholsterer has to learn.
Our upholstery workshops cover the basics of both traditional and modern processes, taught by our lovely group of professional upholsterers. Each tutor teaches their specialist skill to ensure you get the best possible learning experience. We ensure there is plenty of time for practicing in each of these practical workshops.
As we have found that upholstery can be very addictive, we offer a selection of tools and materials that we use in our workshops for sale at the centre for you to continue your new hobby at home.
All personal protection, tools and materials are included (apart from ‘Bring Your Own Chair’, where you pay as you use materials). More details of individual workshops can be found on each choice below.
