About the Course
We run regular evening and weekend classes in both modern and traditional upholstery. We are located on a working farm in beautiful countryside. Our classes are run by Tony, who has over 30 years experience in the high end upholstery business. His wife, Jo, ensures everything runs smoothly and everyone is happy and catered for.
We keep our class numbers small, in an informal and relaxed atmosphere. You will bring your own piece of furniture (small enough to fit in a car) and all levels of experience are welcome, whether you are a complete beginner or have some knowledge and want to enhance your skills. Tony will speak with you before the classes commence to ensure your project is suitable and answer any concerns and questions you may have.
Our weekend classes include a fabulous lunch at The Holy Cow Cafe located on the farm. All of our classes have drinks and snacks readily available. Our returning students often bring in the most divine homemade cakes too.
All tools and equipment are provided to complete your project. However, there is a small charge for any sundries used, e.g., foam, calico, hessian etc. You will supply your own fabric. Tony can advise on quantities and suppliers.
You will learn a new skill, make new friends and leave with a piece of furniture to be proud of, along with a huge feeling of achievement of what you have accomplished.
Our weekend courses run from 9.00am-5.00pm on Saturdays and 9.00am-4.00pm on Sundays. Price £220.
Our evening classes run from 6.30pm-9.30pm on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. We will be adding a Monday evening from September 2019. Prices are £150 for 6 weeks and £200 for 8 weeks.
We take a break from the evening classes during August.
We have a list available of recommended accommodation if required.
