Hamilton & Hodson is an independent upholstery company in Bristol (UK) owned by two female upholsterers (Nicky & Erica), founded in 1994. Together with two assistant upholsterers and an administrator, we offer the following services:
• Client commissions | We repair and re-upholster traditional and modern furniture.
• Upholstery and craft courses | We offer upholstery courses in our workshop to hobby upholsterers, from beginners to more experienced upholsterers. We also offer weekend courses in traditional lampshade making and an online on-demand course in traditional upholstery.
• “The Waiting Room” (restored antique/vintage furniture sales) | We restore and sell unusual antique and vintage pieces, adding our own splash of individuality.
Our in-person upholstery courses take place at our workshop in an old railway station building in North Bristol. The courses give our students the space and opportunity to develop their skills whilst meeting new people and talking about upholstery (or anything else) to their hearts’ content! Our lampshade courses are currently being run at the Langton Wellness Hub in South Bristol.
