Sustainable Upholstery

We are working towards a greener and more sustainable way forward in the upholstery industry.

We responsibly source eco-friendly fabrics made from recycled materials, FSC certified wood, and using environmentally friendly materials,

We buy from local suppliers as much as possible which further reduces our carbon footprint and enables us to support other small UK-based businesses.

The beautiful pieces of furniture that are made in our workshops are built to last. We use high-quality materials that withstand wear and tear over time, reducing the need for replacements.

We are on a mission to empower individuals with skills so they can re-upholster their own furniture or second-hand pieces giving them a new lease of life. This reduces waste and the demand for new furniture production.



Sharing a creative experience with other individuals opens a space for communication. Individuals leave with shared memories, stories and a piece of furniture to last a lifetime.


Upholstery is a craft that allows you to explore your creative side and foster innovation. Experimenting with design details and fabric colours gives you a safe space to play and explore. Igniting your imagination and bringing the creative flair back into life.


By engaging in a practical activity you are able to clear the clutter from your mind and re-engage your imagination.


Upholstery requires focus and attention to detail, bringing you into the present moment, and giving a healthy outlet for stress relief. Learning a new skill that offers a mindfulness element can have a profound impact on your physical and mental health, leaving you feeling re-energised, fulfilled and with a massive sense of achievement.

What our customers think…

I recently attended the deep buttoned upholstery workshop which was absolutely brilliant. Emma was such a good teacher and has great patience but made everything so easy to do using a step by step approach. It was amazing to see a bunch of materials turned into such a lovely seating bench. My friends and family are also super impressed. Would definitely recommend Emma and her courses

Had the best time creating a footstool. Emma is skilled in her craft and teaches at a pace to suit all. Quality fabrics and equipment make creating a pleasure.

Beautiful surroundings and a beautiful end result.

I would certainly recommend and look forward to returning. Thank you Emma.

Attended a deep button upholstery course yesterday and loved every second. Location was stunning, Emma was a wonderful tutor, the quality of the materials and equipment were also outstanding. I would thoroughly recommend people of all abilities and ages give this a go. It’s great fun and you get a beautiful piece of furniture to take away.

A fabulous day switching off from work and being creative. The space is beautiful, Emma’s tuition is top class, and the materials are great quality. Highly recommend doing one of the workshops ❤️
