3 Hour Upholstery Workshop - Morning OR Afternoon Sessions
"What a great day! I’m new to upholstery but will absolutely be back (I'm scouring the house now for the next project!). It was just such a good day. Lots of fun. A big “thank you” to you Sarah for your patience, clear bitesize instructions and simply sharing your skill and clear joy for the craft. I highly recommend this day course. "
"This is a very great workshop if you’re interested in learning how to make a traditional lampshade. I have completed my first ever shade and I couldn’t be more proud of how it turned out. Prior to the workshop, I had zero sewing skills and never used a sewing machine before. Sarah was so patient and kindly taught me how to do both. I was a new student in the class, the rest were returning students which was a good sign. It was such a very pleasant weekend. I learnt so much. Time went past so quickly. Now I’m looking forward to doing more classes with Sarah. I couldn’t recommend this class enough. If you’re looking for a traditional lampshade making class. This is the one."
"Had an absolutely fantastic day on the course last week and came home excited to book another session. Sarah was incredibly knowledgeable and helpful throughout the day making sure to spend time with each of us, answering any questions we had. She explained how the day would pan out early on and was really friendly engaging in conversation as a group so we could get to know each other. It was a lovely calm environment and I will most definitely book again as soon as I’m able to.
Thank you for a lovely day! "
