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

Welcome to the West London Upholstery Bureau.   Just over 2 years ago, I stumbled across the smurf-blue environs of Catherine Wheel Road in Brentford and discovered the exciting premises of Duke of London and the Brentford Project.   I grabbed the chance to take a space there and in no time at all,  I was able to offer day and evening time upholstery classes.

Having taught hundreds of students since qualifying with the AMUSF in 2008, I have the hands-on experience and knowledge to guide you through your reupholstery projects.   My teaching style is encouraging, realistic and professional and if I can help to develop individual creativity and give students a deeper appreciation of this amazing craft – then, I’m happy.

Maybe you’ve been wanting to re-vamp a well-loved chair that you’ve had in the family for years.  Let me know!  It may not be your first project, but we can ‘up’ your skills to take you there.

Perhaps you love fabrics and colour and want more of it in your home, or maybe you’ve always wanted to learn how to do upholstery and you don’t know where to start.   The Upholstery Bureau can help you to do this.

Come and learn to sculpt shapes through traditional and modern skills, explore and learn about the pro’s and con’s of different fabrics and use your hands to produce wonderful, useful things, with other like-minded people – all in small groups.

And 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!
