Christine Turner reviewed: 2 day upholstery course in York City Centre (consecutive days)

"This was an excellent course. Not lectures but hands on working on your project from the word go. Jo is really helpful. She explained clearly what to do next and showed you as well. She was always there when you needed help or were ready to do the next step.There we’re 4 of us doing different types of work and she helped us all individually and seamlessly ( sorry about that one). The fact that 2 of the people were returning for a second course says it all. "

Fay Painter reviewed: 2 day upholstery course in York City Centre (consecutive days)

"Traditional skills in a lovely old studio. Jo is a fantastic teacher, very skilled and knowledgeable and gives each student individual attention and support. Thoroughly enjoyed the 2 day course, so much so returning in March for a further 2 day course! Strongly recommend if you want to learn upholstery skills in a lovely welcoming environment. "

Rachel Walker reviewed: 2 day upholstery course in York City Centre (consecutive days)

"I had such a lovely couple of days with Jo learning how to put springs into a chair and upholster it traditionally. All we needed to take was the item of furniture and the top fabric and everything else was provided including materials and tools. There was plenty of help ahead of the course for how to strip the old coverings, and the studio is in the beautiful location of Fossgate in the centre of York. Jo’s teaching style is to demonstrate the next steps, make sure you understand and then allow you go at your own pace (with guidance on where we needed to get to at key milestones in order to finish the project) and to help as and when necessary. So as a beginner I got a lot out of the course and definitely want to carry on learning! "

Hannah reviewed: 2 day upholstery course in York City Centre (consecutive days)

"Had a wonderful experience. Not only did I learn a lot and at a pace and shown relevant to my learning technique but Jo had to put up with me being a bit disorganised trying to find a suitable chair and asking a lot of questions before even entering the classroom. It is small groups so was suitable to cater for anybody with anxiety. It is all very relaxed and homely. I am now confident to try all the skills on a new project. Thank you Jo x"

" Hi Hannah What a lovely review. Believe me - you are not the only person to ask a lot of questions before the course :) and questions are very welcome! You and your Mum did really well with your projects, great work, especially with the springs - super quick! x"
