Just started a 30'hour course of classes. The workshops are very friendly and relaxed and eveyone encourages 5each other. The tutor Garry is amazing he knows all you need to know about upholstery and is very hands on. I'm currently reupholstering a wing back chair and Garry is helping totally redesign which is what I wanted to learn. It's good to learn as many traditional techniques as possible.
I would highly recommend it.
