Welcome to the Upholstery Bureau – offering upholstery classes for learning traditional and modern skills – in a fun, supportive workshop.

Hey, have you been hankering to try your hand at upholstery?  Then come and join me here in the exciting, smurf-blue environs of Duke of London and the Brentford Project in West London.

Having taught hundreds of students since qualifying with the AMUSF in 2008, I have the experience and knowledge to guide you through your reupholstery projects.  My classes are small with 3-6 students maximum per session, so it’s pretty much like private tuition.   You gain skills and practice through tons of 1 to 1 instruction, lots of group discussion and spontaneous investigations.  I’m encouraging, realistic and professional and if I can help to develop individual creativity and give students a deeper appreciation of this amazing craft – then – we’re good!    And you are likely to meet some nice people along the way.

Come and learn to sculpt shapes through traditional and modern upholstery skills, learn tips and tricks, explore the pro’s and con’s of different fabrics and use your hands to produce wonderful, useful things.

If you haven’t been to ‘The Brentford Riviera’ –  it’s a special little place full of quirky delights just near the lock.

See you there –
