About the Course

The Upholstery for Beginners course gives a step-by-step clear instruction for anyone wanting to learn some upholstery techniques. The learner will work on their own furniture and be guided through each stage of their project from stripping down the old upholstery, webbing, stuffing and stitching techniques to putting on the top fabric.

The class sizes are small, (I aim for about seven students) and the sessions are long enough to really get stuck into you work (but with a break, of course). It is a very peaceful and friendly class, where much can be achieved.

All you need for the first session is a chair or something in need of upholstery. Not too big. No Sofas please! Dining chairs, piano stools or side chairs are ideal.

I am an experienced furniture maker, tutor, upholsterer and craftsman and I look forward to helping you with your project.

What's included in the price?

All tools will be provided and I am happy to loan tools to anyone who wants to do some more work at home during the course.
The cost is £13 per 3 hour session.
Due to the variety of projects members will pay for their own materials, under careful guidance. A very rough estimate would be £25 plus the cost of your top cover but it depends so much on your project. Many of the materials used can be provided by me and I will bill you at the end of the project

I provide tea, coffee and biscuits, as there is a small kitchen at the venue.
