Don’t want to dive right in? Dip a toe in the water with our unique Upholstery Taster Week. Learn the basic principles of upholstery such as webbing, springing, stuffing, re-covering and shallow buttoning. Become familiar with upholstery tools and terminology. Examine fabrics, practise measuring-up and cutting-out.
If you’ve already had a go at upholstery, we can help you move on to more-advanced projects. Learn the complete re-building of furniture from the frame up – with sprung arms and back, stitched-edge rolls, deep buttoning, and gimps and braids.
