So you’re interested in learning upholstery? Awesome!
Here at Manorhouse, we understand that it can be a daunting prospect. Don’t worry though, our weekly recreational course offers the perfect environment to learn and develop your upholstery skills. These 2.5 hour upholstery courses run weekly in blocks of 12 weeks and are mixed ability groups - from absolute beginners to highly experienced.
Students on our weekly upholstery courses work in small groups and new students are encouraged to begin with a small item of furniture such as a drop in seat, a small footstool, or even a headboard. All equipment is available to use, and students are welcome to bring their own tools if they prefer.
Our Modern Upholstery course is the ideal course for those who want to set up an upholstery business – part-time or full time, making a range of smaller popular items, or simply want to learn a wider range of upholstery skills and techniques.
Based around a set of key transferable skills and including the essential knowledge to set up and operate as an upholsterer, this course is the complete package – 100% hands-on, practical and fully supported at all stages.
Taught over 12 days this course includes 6 core pieces that you take away at the end of the course – to keep as examples or sell.
We also offer a series of short 1 and 3 day courses throughout the year - usually on Saturdays
