Learn Upholstery Like a Professional

22 September 2017

We're launching our new 'Learn Upholstery Like a Professional' course and wanted to let you know first before spaces run out. We know you'll be keen to attend - it's sure to give you all the skills needed to create beautiful, high-quality upholstery and soft furnishings.Classes are only small - a maximum of 6 people per group - meaning you'll have a fantastic chance to learn, while also making close and firm friends with those you're studying with. 

Our classes are available in the evenings for a run of 10 weeks, and at the weekend for a total of 15 hours tuition. Included in this price are all the basic tools, safety equipment, and materials, plus refreshments. 

You should know by now that our course requirements are anything but stuffy or stern... all you need is to turn up with a great sense of humour and a willingness to learn within a supportive environment. We'll even throw in some homemade cakes and cookies too, plus a glass of wine with our weekend lunches. Where else would you get that kind of hospitality while also learning such a great new skill too? 

Now's your time to learn what it takes to produce basic upholstery, curtain-making and fixing soft furnishings like a pro. You'll be such a whizz when you're done that you'll be giving us a run for our money! It won't just be your own chairs, sofas and chaise longues that you'll want to spruce up, but everyone else's too. You'll soon be hooked on finding furniture that you can give some much-needed tender loving care to.

On our professional upholstery course, you will learn (amongst much more):

- What furniture is most suitable for re-upholstery and the various styles

- How to strip and prepare your furniture for re-building

- The various stages of building upholstery up

- Which fabrics are most suitable for upholstery and their finished performance

- Fire regulations and safety aspects

- Finishing touches

Interested? We thought as much!

Spaces are limited, and they're already filling up fast and we'd hate for you to miss out, so call now on 01380 578238 to book your slot or to find out more about what each course involves
