Steph reviewed: Upholstery/cushion making

"The upholstery course was fantastic! I brought a small footstool as a project to complete while being instructed by Jo. It was immensely enjoyable to see something get restored that had been gathering dust in my attic for years, and knowing that I did it myself was a really rewarding experience. I am not a very crafty person but I still managed it all thanks to Jo's instruction. She is very patient and explained each step very clearly. I'd definitely recommend this course to anyone wanting to learn a new skill."

"Hi Steph Thanks for a great review! You were a very diligent student and really applied yourself. You did a fantastic job... hope to see you again someday. Jo "

Jayne Lees reviewed: Upholstery/cushion making

"Really enjoyed the two days I've spent working on the chair I brought to York - Jo's been really helpful and I think I've learned a lot - the group was small and so we got a lot of support at each stage. Relaxing atmosphere. Very good value for money :) Thanks Jo"

What Jo did next responded:

"Thanks Jayne! I'm glad you feel that you got the support you needed. I'm always busy running from person to person, so I'm very happy to hear that the atmosphere in the studio was still relaxing for you. I think the value is in my students being able to bring their own materials along, if they want to. I do try to make the courses affordable for all. Jo"

Emma T reviewed: Upholstery/cushion making

"As a complete novice I was very nervous that I had taken on much too big a project! Jo was not phased however, and took me patiently through every step of restoring my old chair using traditional methods. Thanks Jo! I’ll be back soon! "

What Jo did next responded:

"With the decision to strip it right down to replace the stuffing platforms, and the repairs you made to the frame - your old chair will survive another 100 or more years. You're doing a great job! See you soon! "

Kay reviewed: Upholstery/cushion making

"Excellent course with a really informative instructor….Jo certainly knows her stuff. Would recommend as you can learn all elements of upholstery- just don’t over face yourself with too ambitious a project."

What Jo did next responded:

"Thanks for a great review Kay - it was lovely to work with you. Your wonderfully decorative black and gold velvet chair will be featuring on my course photos soon! "
