About the Course
This course runs continuously throughout the year giving you a flexible start date to fit around you
Open to all experience levels from beginner to improver, you will learn how to strip away existing upholstery, clean and carry out basic repairs, polish or paint the show wood before building up the upholstery using traditional or modern methods sympathetic to your project.
There is no restriction to the type of furniture you bring with you, as long as you can transport it to and from the training room, however if this is your first project a drop in seat, headboard or footstool is ideal.
Based in the picturesque & historical village of Castor between Stamford & Peterborough, we are a working farm situated on the Cambridgeshire, Lincolnshire, Leicestershire and Northamptonshire borders surrounded by beautiful unspoilt countryside.
Sarah trained as an upholsterer through the Association of Master Upholsterers & Soft Furnishers (AMUSF) Specialising in traditional upholstery and restoration, she is incredibly enthusiastic about her craft and is highly respected by her ever increasing client base.
Sarah has been teaching one to one in her studio since 2012 and now runs workshops & courses in upholstery and lampshade making in a dedicated training room at the farm.
With a maximum of 3 students you will receive a high level of individual tuition.
All experience levels welcome, from complete beginner to improvers.
