upholstery for beginners & improvers

Our Upholstery classes will teach you the core skills you need to give a footstool, drop in seat, small ottoman or treasured family heirloom a new lease of life.

Our weekly Monday morning class is perfect for beginners and improvers while our Sunday workshops are designed for simple starter projects that can be completed on the day. Our small class size guarantees you plenty of expert tuition and support from your tutors and the other students.

See the class timetable and contact Leonie to book your spot.

Our experienced tutors Ania & Claire run the Upholstery for Beginners classes. Ania teaches the weekly classes and Clare teaches the Sunday Workshops.

Before you book

Before you book, we ask that you send us a photo of your proposed upholstery project. This is so that we can check its suitable for the course.

Upholstery can be complicated and sometimes projects are anything but! We just want to make sure that you can complete your upholstery project within the timeframe of the course (or workshop).

Monday weekly classes are perfect for more complicated projects while our Sunday workshop is strictly for beginners and simple upholstery projects.

If in doubt, get in touch to discuss your requirements.
