What's included in the price?
*All tools and materials (stuffing, wadding, calico) will be provided as part of the fee. You will need to bring along the piece of furniture you wish to upholster and some yummy fabric and any braiding you wish to apply.
I have been to two of the day courses and loved it. I now find myself searching for more items to cover which will test the skills learned. Highly recommend this class.
I loved learning the traditional methods of upholstery, but so much more to learn.

I had been planning to upholster my four dining chair for ages and would probably have never got round to it had it not been for Vicky's upholstery course. I seriously underestimated what I needed to do to make my chairs look new again. Fortunately, with Vicky's expertise and a large dollop of patience (hers and mine) my chairs look amazing. I highly recommend her course. Love her studio too!

I have no experience in upholstery and turned up with a £20 footstool that I found at an antiques market. I was very apprehensive about what I could achieve but was amazed with the results. Vicky was very good at breaking down all the different stages that we had to go through and made them seem very achievable. My friends and family cannot believe that I upholstered the footstool. Somebody did ask if I could do one for them (not sure I am there yet but pleased they thought so!) I am on the look out for my next piece as it is really rewarding coming away with something that looks so great!

I did not have much faith in my ability to upholster but cannot believe what Vicky managed to teach me in one day. I arrived with a £10 telephone table seat and left with something that looks like I paid a lot more for it and has pride of place in my bedroom. We stripped our items right back and learnt all the traditional techniques to get our items looking great again. Vicky knows loads about fabrics too and was able to suggest some amazing suppliers. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone wanting to give upholstery a go or further their skills. I'm hooked now!
