Upholstery project assessment before starting a course.



This is a one-to-one session where you can discuss your upholstery project with your tutor. The session runs for 30 mins. You can start your session any time between 10:00 and 14:00. Please message me when you would like to start. If you don't already have a chair. I may have one for sale or we can discuss where you might be able to source one. We would discuss time scales to upholster your project in conjunction with your experience and if your project will need any remedial work such as frame restoration and show wood polishing. Suitable top fabrics and where to source them. If you would like to message me with a picture of your chair so we can have an initial discussion about your project.

I trained as a cabinetmaker 50 years ago. As a mature student, i obtained a first class honours degree in antique furniture conservation and restoration. I set up my business, Peter White Furniture, where for the last 20 years I have been restoring and upholstering antique furniture for clients. Now in my upholstery studio, and under the name of 'The upholstery tutor' I offer upholstery courses where students will learn to upholster their own chair using traditional techniques and materials. Based in a rural setting overlooking the Warwickshire countryside.

Each year from the 6th April the price of my sessions will increase by a small amount to cover the increased prices of my overheads.
Any sessions booked for after the 6th April but paid for before the 6th April will be charged at the lower price.

Please do not attend the session if you have any symptoms of a cold or cough. This is for the protection of myself and your fellow students. Call or txt me stating your ill and I can reschedule your session.

If I have a cold or cough I will contact all students the day before, or earlier, and cancel the session. I will then reschedule that session, with you, to a date after I've recovered.
