Upholstery Class / Evening Course Search

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

Here at Running With Scissors (http://www.rwssheffield.co.uk) we have been thinking about putting on a upholstery course. If there is a resonable amount of interest I will investigate finding a tutor. I would imagine that it would centre around bringing your own project, restoring the structure of the chair and then learning the upholsterry skills. It would probably take a number of weeks, with maybe a bit of work at home.

 

Let me know if anyone is interested and I'll see what we can do! :)

I too have been looking for a local upholstery course. Amazed/disappointed that i cand seem to find anything at either sheffield or chesterfield colleges.

 

 

If you're only intending it to be an hobby, have you considered asking any local upholsterers if they'll be willing to let you help out for free on saturdays?. I should imagine you'll be tea mashing and sweeping up half of the time, but once you grasp the basic techniques, you'll still learn more than you ever would at college. I was in the industry for 11 yrs, and you wouldn't believe the amount of students iv'e seen bringing in half finished college projects that they were unable to finish.
