Jane reviewed: Bring Your Own Upholstery Project - 1 day workshop - Week Days

"I thoroughly enjoyed this course and plan to book more days! Sarah is a natural teacher and for a novice like me, she put me at ease. The environment was excellent for learning and the small group provided an opportunity to engage with and pick up tips from other learners. Sarah has given me the motivation to recover my small armchair and as my confidence grows, I may well join the business course. Thank you Sarah for your encouragement and patience. Highly recommended! "

David Woodhouse reviewed: Bring Your Own Upholstery Project - Saturday Workshop

"I had the most fabulous day learning the basics of upholstery with the wonderful Sarah who welcomed me into part of her home. This day was part of my birthday present bought for me by my wife and I can honestly say that the whole day was just perfect. Sarah is a brilliant teacher who demonstrated each part of the process in a comprehensive way to ensure that I had a complete understanding of what was required, she then let me try and replicate the process with gentle hints to assist me in getting the required result. At no point was I made to feel inadequate and I was delighted with my finished result and will definitely return for some more instruction but this time with my wife who is also keen to learn."

"I am in the process of reupholstering the arms of a Parker Knoll armchair and recovering the rest of the chair and have really enjoyed the process so far under Sarah's diligent guidance. The classes are small so you don't spend time waiting for Sarah's advice and she is an excellent teacher. If you're thinking of pursuing an upholstery project I would 100% recommend booking a course with Mode Upholstery!"

Jodi reviewed: Bring Your Own Upholstery Project - Saturday Workshop

"I did the day course - Bring your own upholstery project. Sarah was friendly and helpful from the first interactions. It was a well structured introduction and Sarah was helpful before hand to choose the right furniture to bring and then ran a great day to learn the basics. I now have the techniques to complete my set of dining chairs."
