A fantastic flexible and friendly course which I can not recommend enough. I called Karen out of the blue for a chat about my project and the type of fabric I should buy, she was so friendly and helpful I enrolled straight onto the course. It's been fantastic to take along my own project, karen's very knowledgeable and tailored the sessions to what I wanted to achieve, even gave me little tasks to do before the next session, which was just what I wanted. 4/5 sessions down and I'm coming to the end of my project, I'm really going to miss it and can't wait to find the next project to move onto.

I get quite a few friends laughing when I say I drive down from London on a weekly basis and have been doing so for the past three weeks to see Karen. As a self employed person I cannot take several days off to hunker down in another city so the morning short courses are totally worth it and a nice break from my routine.
What is even better is it is traditional upholstery. Not a staple in sight which is exactly what I wanted.
Karen is very passionate about what she does and the popularity of her courses proves it.
It is a flexible way of learning a new skill and the wealth of knowledge I am currently getting from Karen is amazing.

Totally addicted!! Been coming for over 6 months, Karen is absolutely fantastic. She is attentive, flexible and ready to share her ideas and experience. As well as her invaluable knowledge of upholstery she has created a fun, welcoming and comfortable environment in which to complete your project/projects!! Can't recommend highly enough.

Such a wonderful course!
Karen was always on hand to help with the fiddly / frustrating bits. I learnt so much and had a lot of fun doing it.
I'm already looking for my next project...

I can not recommend Karen an her course highly enough. Her style of teaching is perfect as you gain all the know how you need, with a real hands on approach. I have given new life to lots of pre loved chairs an foot stools an take great pride in the quality finish Karen has helped me create. I look forward all week to going again. Real ME time an we all need that.

Thank you Karen, I had a great time and your course is just what I had in mind - My new footstool looks amazing!!! I would now feel confident doing a small project myself. Really appreciated you letting me be flexible with my dates, your home was lovely (especially your home made cakes and biscuits!!!). I will be getting one of your courses as a gift for my sister.
