I make footstools to commission and have extensive knowledge of refurbishing projects. The classes and workshops provide all the equipment and guidance you need to make a footstool or headboard from new or to refurbish a chair or footstool of your own.
Everyone enjoys coming to the classes and workshops and it's a lovely space in a countryside setting.

One day upholstery workshops - make your own footstool
"I was looking forward to doing this course with my daughter Sarah. The place is a bit out of the way but a nice drive through the village of Wray. On arrival we started with tea and warm croissants then we started on our footstools. Sarah realised just how hard it is on your hands. At lunchtime Sue supplied us with a beautiful meal, very filling. We then went back to work. I had done some upholstery before but I learnt things I hadn’t done before. Mid afternoon was tea and mince pie although stuffed it would have been rude not to. We over ran on time a little but the result was a lovely footstool."
" Thank you for your review. It was lovely to meet you both and you made two beautiful footstools.
Kind regards, Sue"
"Lovely day learning lots about working with wood. Sue was very welcoming and a great tutor and I am delighted with the set of shelves I made. The warmed croissants at the start and a delicious lunch were the icing on the cake. I would highly recommend this workshop especially for woodwork novices"
" Thank you Angela for your lovely review. You picked up all the skills very quickly and the shelves you made were nicely done.
It was good to meet you and I look forward to seeing you again. Sue"
"A fun day for a complete novice making a footstool in a lovely setting… First rate tuition from Sue… Who also provided everything you could possibly need during the day – including a very tasty lunch and refreshments throughout… Certainly the day exceeded my expectations as did the finished product!!! I would highly recommend giving the course a try…."
" Very kind of you to leave such a glowing review. Glad you enjoyed the day with Four Sue’s!!
Thank you, Sue"
