The course is focused on teaching a range of core, transferable upholstery skills that can be applied to a range of furniture and items of soft furnishings, and that will allow you to begin creating from your own space or to enhance your current job role. The equipment needed to set up your own upholstery studio is limited to a few key items, and you will learn about each of these on the course.

The Modern Upholstery course is designed to provide individuals with the practical skills required to undertake a wide variety of upholstery projects. While there are many different types and styles of upholstery, many of the foundation skills are the same, meaning that once you have mastered them, they can be applied to other projects.

While on the course, you will spend the majority of your time in our workshop mastering these core skills, and practising them over and over.
