Beginners Upholstery Classes

This course offers an insight into the art of upholstery and is intended to give the beginner a good basic knowledge to tackle projects at home. (With a few upholsterer secrets thrown in)

The upholstery courses are run by Nigel Cook.

The course includes

  • choosing the right piece of furniture for your project – Fabrics, webbing and springs,
  • measuring, cutting and stretching,
  • finishing details such as braids, gimp, nails etc.

You will be able to do a small hands-on project during the course.

Although this course is not designed to tackle your own project in the store, there will be opportunities to bring along your own projects for group discussions.
