About the Course

Students arrive at our lovely space in Godalming for a really interesting day of traditional upholstery, usually excited as they are unsure what the day entails.

The business owner and teacher is Sarah Dix, who has 13 years experience as a professional upholsterer. Sarah will enthuse her students with some history of upholstery and amusing anecdotes from the business. Having a fashion design background (she worked for Vivienne Westwood's PR company) students are surrounded by fabrics and furniture that Sarah has designed, making it feel like a real working, creative environment.

Students will work hard upholstering a drop in seat for a handmade beach wood footstool frame. This will give students the perfect introduction to the upholstery materials, tools and methods to go on and tackle something more challenging. We offer a sprung dining chair as a follow on workshop.

The atmosphere is fun and relaxed. We break for half an hour for lunch and there are local shop to buy food from.

If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above or telephone us. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.

What's included in the price?

Please note that you will NOT need to bring any furniture with you, as a square beech wood footstool is included in the price. You will need to provide your own top fabric. You will require approximately half a metre of upholstery weight fabric.

All tools and materials are provided.

Tea and coffee is available for £1 and please either bring your own lunch or there are nearby places you can get some.
