Maker's bio

I trained as a cabinetmaker 50 years ago. As a mature student, i obtained a first class honours degree in antique furniture conservation and restoration. I set up my business, Peter White Furniture, where for the last 20 years I have been restoring and upholstering antique furniture for clients. Now in my upholstery studio, and under the name of 'The upholstery tutor' I offer upholstery courses where students will learn to upholster their own chair using traditional techniques and materials. Based in a rural setting overlooking the Warwickshire countryside.

Jane reviewed: Upholstery project assessment before starting a course.

"The assessment was real value for money and certainly longer than the 30 mins I paid for. Peter was informative and very helpful in explaining the course and the offer. There was no pressure to sign up. Peter is very knowledgeable and no question was too difficult. Thank you!"

"Yesterday I completed my second project, a small chair. I am delighted with the result achieved with Peter's expert help and guidance. It was interesting to see how he considered the shape of the chair frame to work out how to proceed. Wonderful attention to detail throughout the project. Thank you Peter. "

Sue Folly reviewed: Learn traditional upholstery

"I’ve just finished upholstering my chair with Peter White Furniture at Stockton Hill Farm. I’m thrilled with it. It’s been stripped completely down and with his expertise and advise it has been rebuilt. Peter is an excellent teacher, extremely patient and very knowledgable of his craft. I’ve leaned such a lot. Thank you Peter, I would recommend you to anyone. "

Peter White Furniture responded:

"Your chair looks fantastic Sue. The choice of fabric with the studding really complimented the frame. Your upholstery skills have come on a treat. Well done on completing a different chair."

"An excellent course! Peter is very hands on but mindful to let you do the work. A very patient and thoughtful teacher. Highly recommend"

Peter White Furniture responded:

"Well done Maggie, your chair looks great. Tub chairs are not an easy shape to upholster. But you did a fantastic job."
