Upholstery Workshops & Courses

Ever wanted to learn Upholstery?


We have a variety of courses and workshops.  The upholstery course takes place over 6 evenings or mornings. You should complete a couple of projects and will learn the foundation techniques of traditional upholstery as well as some decorative finishing   This is ideal for beginners but also suitable for those wishing to take on more advanced projects.

Our Upholstery Classes

Classes are limited to 6 students and are taught by an established professional upholsterer.

You can also make a project from scratch such as a box cushion or footstool at our one-day workshops or book  a drop-in upholstery club session for access to tools and help with your project. 

Evening upholstery course


Our evening course is Mondays, 6.30-9pm   This is a 6-week course where you will learn traditional upholstery techniques.  You can work on your own furniture or there is an option to create a footstool from scratch to your design. The cost includes tool hire and consumables.  It's suitable for complete beginners or those with some experience. We send out an information sheet on booking to help you choose projects but if you would like a copy prior to booking please get in touch!

Friday mornings upholstery class & drop-in sessions

The  Friday morning sessions are 10-12.30. They can be booked in 6-week blocks (ideal for beginners) as well as blocks of 3 or single sessions for those with some experience who just need a bit of occasional help or use of specialist tools.

The cost includes tool use and consumables and the 6-week block has a make-a-footstool option. Classes are limited to 6 so everyone has an opportunity for individual help. 

Class Update

Sorry! We are not taking any new booking for upholstery classes until we have re-scheduled all the classes cancelled in 2020. We hope to be open to new students in February 2021 and details will be published in our monthly newsletter and on this website.
