"What a wonderful day at the Boho Shed upholstery session with Jo. I learnt so much from Jo who was so knowledgeable and had time for everyone who needed assistance, advice or any questions answered. There were plenty of tips to help me with my upholstery in the future. The location and setting was brilliant with a fabulous restaurant attached to the workshop selling homemade food that was delicious. Jo also provided tea and homemade yummy cakes. The rest of the group who attended were lovely with lots of lighthearted banter, laughs and fun. I would strongly recommend signing up for the upholstery course for the day with Jo at the Boho Shed, whether you’re just starting out with upholstery or curious to find out what it’s all about. I promise you you’ll get hooked and want to start on more projects of your own at home. Thanks Jo for your kindness, patience, outstanding knowledge and hosting a lovely day."

The Boho Shed responded:

" Aww Julie, thank you so very much for your gorgeous review. I'm delighted you enjoyed the workshop, the venue, the laughs and the cakes :-) I had a really great day with you all too. I look forward to seeing what you produce at home. Big hugs. x"

"This course is brilliant! I knew very little about DIY before it but I feel confident enough to tackle many jobs I’ve previously paid people to do for me. I’ve always been intimidated by a drill but not now. I can confidently put up shelves, hang pictures and probably a lot more jobs involving a drill. Jo is a lovely patient teacher who ensures everyone leaves satisfied. I fully recommend it to anyone who’s always thought DIY wasn’t for them."

Lesley Breckenridge reviewed: Beginners Upholstery Workshop in Preston, Lancashire (1 Day) - Make a Footstool & learn all about the tools, foams, materials, folds, finishings etc.

"What an excellent day out, I haven’t enjoyed myself so much for an age! We started the day with all the ladies on the workshop chatting and introducing themselves and then Jo offered us wonderful home made scones with jam and cream or home made delicious chocolate cake, made by her mother. Tea and coffee and biscuits were freely available all day long for anyone to help themselves. Jo is very kind and patient and is an extremely talented lady. First things were a walk through of the process, showing us the stages of making the foot stool, which we then went back through step by step as we carried out construction of our amazing little foot stools. We painted/waxed our wooden feet and then started to layer up the foam and filling before we broke for lunch. As we worked through the steps, Jo would use each of our footstools as examples to show us what to do next. The delight we all felt when we finally got to put our fabric on the footstool was showing in all our faces. We were so proud of what we had made The ladies on the course all got on well and it was an excellent fun day. Jo gave us clear instruction and was only too happy to help anyone of us if we needed it. My footstool turned out so much better than I thought it would. I would certainly recommend this workshop for a great day out to meet new people and most importantly to meet Jo and take her instruction in making a gorgeous footstool. Anyone who isn’t sure should take this as a ‘definitely go do it’ Thank you Jo, for a fabulous day!"

The Boho Shed responded:

" Awww Lesley, what a really fantastic review, thank you so much. What a great day we had! And what a great bunch of ladies. You all made it so special. Thank you also for all your help throughout the day helping others and packing up etc. You lovely lady you! xxx"
