What's included in the price?

Each day will be spent in the workshop from 9.30 to 4.00 alongside other students on the same course. We know that many people are looking for a change to their routine, or want to create a better work/life balance, or maybe want to earn some extra money, but they are not sure they have the skills or knowledge to make the change. This course has been designed specifically for such circumstances. It’s packed with practical, hands-on experience, with much of the theory and knowledge being dealt with during the practical sessions – e.g. pattern matching is introduced in a practical session rather than in a classroom because it makes much more sense when you can see the pattern on an item of furniture. The course is focused on teaching a range of core, transferable upholstery skills that can be applied to a range of furniture and items of soft furnishings, and that will allow you to begin creating from your kitchen table, spare room, or garden studio. The equipment needed to set up your own upholstery studio is limited to a few key items and you will learn about each of these on the course.
