Business upholstery course - taster day.

Business upholstery course - taster day.


The Business upholstery course taster day provides an opportunity to spend a day in the workshop on the main Business course and to experience the style of teaching and the level of skills that offered on the full course.

The Business upholstery course has been designed and developed with a sole purpose in mind – to give you the essential skills, knowledge, and confidence to set up and run your own upholstery business. We know that many people are either looking for a change to their routine; want to create a better work/life balance; or simply want to earn some extra money; but they are not sure they have the correct skills and/or knowledge to make the change.

This is the ideal upholstery course for someone in that position. 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.

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

What's included in the price?

The taster day will be spent in the workshop from 9.30 to 4.00 alongside current students who will be working on various items from the main syllabus. You will work on a drop in seat pad and learn to add webbing, foam and various liner and top cover layers to produce a sample project, as well as going through a full overview of the main course.
The taster day can be arranged for a suitable Thursday or Friday and the date will be discussed after receipt of your booking.
