Learn upholstery and have fun at Ball Hill farm upholstery


About the Course

Nicky Gane's been teaching Soft Furnishing and Upholstery for over 20 years. She believes upholstery should be fun but her standards are second to none!
Upholstery at lovely Ball Hill Farm in Somerset is taught in a purpose built workshop, fully equipped to help you learn all the techniques of the craft.
This course is run on a workshop basis, where you work on a project of your own choosing at a pace appropriate to your experience. Classes of up to seven are composed of students of all abilities from absolute beginners up to those who already use upholstery as part of their businesses but wish to hone their skills further.
Learning Upholstery is an intense but really enjoyable experience which engages not only your practical skills but appeals to to your artistic side too!

I can highly recommend this course. Nicky has excellent knowledge and skills which she imparts in a friendly and welcoming workshop. She can provide all tools and materials required other than your chosen fabric for your project. The day runs smoothly with coffee and tea and a wonderful light lunch taken with other participants, many of whom are on-going students who are “old hands”.
On the days I attended, there was another expert on hand for advice and guidance, although Nicky was always there to make sure we all kept working to a very high standard.
