Beginners upholstery classes in a country workshop setting

A new large footstool with hand-turned legs made by a course participant


Come and enjoy the weekly classes and learn new skills whilst having fun. Wednesday mornings from 10am to 12.30pm or afternoons from 2pm to 4.30pm everyweek. Purpose-built bright workshop in the countryside with lovely views.

You can do traditional upholstery with webbing, hessian, horsehair and calico or you can make from new with modern foam and stapling techniques.

Participants have tackled a huge range of projects such as re-covering dining chairs and footstools, making new footstools, new headboards, re-covering a screen, rebuilding occasional chairs and refurbishing piano stools.

Please note that availability may vary week to week depending on the number of participants. When you book I will phone you to discuss dates.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.

You can purchase the foam, horsehair, hessian, calico, etc at cost. Bases are made to measure for you.
