A full day of project based learning from 10am til 4pm every Thursday.

Ideal for those students who wish to speed up their learning or wish to have more time working on an advanced project – such as a traditional armchair or a large project such as a wingback or club chair.   Beginners are completely welcome here too as it is an opportunity to pick up your learning pace.  As a beginner, all the first skills are covered such as tools and how to use them, identifying fillings and sheet waddings, making cuts around posts, choosing fabrics, simple repairs, tacking and using the pneumatic staple gun.   Please email me for advice at saramac@upholsterybureau.com and take a look at the FAQs page for guidelines to choosing an appropriate project.

As a more experienced upholsterer, you will be organised and encouraged to set out an order of work for your project, to choose appropriate waddings and fillings, to anticipate the next task, but always with the tutor’s guidance and support.   You’ll pick up tips to improve your skills and techniques but also be expected to show that you can progress more quickly.  Obviously everyone works at their own pace depending on their skill level, but through group and individual learning, you’ll be carefully guided with hands-on demonstrations and instructions.

Class size is a maximum of 6 students and this ensures plenty of 1 to 1 and group learning with handouts and resources provided to refer to in the future.   There are individual benches to allow for social distancing as well as good ventilation and plenty of fresh air in the workspace.

Students record the materials they use in the workshop, and settle up their account towards the last session.

There is a half hour lunch break at 1pm.   The fee for enrolling for the whole day is discounted from £640 to £525

£525 per person
