Upholstery Courses at Eridge Village Hall

Having taught upholstery at Kent Adult Education for a couple of years, I am now running my own small, friendly classes for complete beginners and those with some upholstery experience .

Students are required to bring along a project of their choice, although I do encourage beginners to bring along something small to begin with, such as a dining chair or footstool. You will be able to work on your own personal project, at your own pace, under my guidance.

I will take beginners through all the basics of upholstery:

  • the tools of the trade
  • how to strip back furniture
  • materials and stuffings
  • how to web, spring and stuff
  • knots and stitching
  • cuts and folds

There will be plenty of tools for you to use in class, so no need to go and buy any. You will also be able to purchase any materials and stuffings as you require them (except for top fabric) during the course.
