This 6 week traditional upholstery course is very much dictated by what you wish to achieve. You’ll benefit from seeing a variety of works being completed alongside your own project, class demonstrations and one-to-one support. The beauty of a weekly class is the available time to complete homework if you wish to really make the most of tuition during the lesson – you can achieve so much more!
