Alex reviewed: 6-Week Evening Class Upholstery - Beginners', Wednesdays

"I decided to join this class to enable me to upcylcle my tired furniture to suit my new home instead of buying new. Katie was great, so patient and knowledgeable she encouraged me to try traditional techniques on my antique chair. Katie gave me lots of advice and guidance on things I could do at home between classes to maximise my time in the workshop. I enjoyed the classes so much I signed up for another course! I have met some fantastic people who I have stayed in touch with and we have all continued to put our new skills to use in our own homes. Brilliant value for money and a joyful way of spending an evening "
