This is a 9 week mixed ability project based upholstery session on Thursday mornings from 10am til 1pm.   There is the option on Thursdays to enrol for the afternoon session from 1:30pm til 4pm (see Thursday Afternoon Upholstery) or enrol for the whole day from 10 til 4pm (see Thursday All Day Upholstery).

Beginner students should choose a project suited to their skill level, so starting with something small is always best.  Email me a photo of your project prior to the course at and check out the FAQs page for guidance and advice.  You’ll learn all the basic upholstery skills such as tools and how to use them, identifying sheet waddings, fillings, making cuts around posts, choosing the right fabric for the job, small repairs, measuring and cutting, temporary tacking and using the pneumatic staple gun.

More experienced students can do a medium sized project but due to space, it is not always possible to do a wingback or club chair immediately, so please let me know what you have in mind to work on.  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.

This course includes other topics which vary from term to term depending on your project but can include: making double piping; spring applications; working with foam & modern techniques; making a stitched edge and traditional techniques; making a cutting plan; pricing your work; buttoning process; working independently; looking specifically at a chair, fabric or upholstery designer.

Class size is a maximum of 6 students.  Individual benches allow for social distancing and the space is well ventilated and there is plenty of fresh air.

If this course is full, you may be able to enrol in the afternoon class or the Tuesday morning class.
