"I’ve had a really super day learning new skills at Mode upholstery 1day course. I took along a small chair and had fun stripping it right back to the frame discovering along the way the layers of different covers and materials that made up the history of the chair. Sarah is an extremely good teacher, passing on her knowledge and skill in an easy, relaxed way. Altogether a really super fun day that I would thoroughly recommend. "
"I thoroughly enjoyed my day under Sarah's guidance. She made us feel very welcome and the space was perfect for facilitating a small group. I took a Parker Knoll arm chair to the class and it was my first experience of re-upholstery so quite a big challenge! However, Sarah's teaching was individualised and she was very helpful in all aspects. I look forward to booking more sessions in the future!"
"My husband and I did the one day course. We each took along a dining room chair and Sarah guided us through the process, she shared her experience and skills with us and by the end of the day we felt like we had learned and achieved a great deal. We are looking forward to returning to going back to learn more."
