What can you buy for someone that has everything this Christmas?
Why not treat them to 
an Upholstery Workshop experience.

If your loved one is anything like me, they will probably buy whatever they want there and then. This can make it much more difficult for loved ones to try and find them a gift they will want or make use of, come the festive period. In our house, we choose to save Christmas present money and put it towards things such as holidays in the New Year, so we can experience something together- instead of presents we may only use once! Before scanning online and rushing around the high street desperately to find the perfect gift, why not research and see if there’s a new experience you can give someone this Christmas…

Buying an experience

Buying an experience, or a weekend getaway, for a loved one this Christmas can be a much more creative, personal idea than a gift that you may buy in a rush at the last minute (don’t worry, we have all been there!). Especially after nearly two years of social distancing, wearing masks and being cooped up at home- being able to learn something new or visit somewhere new can be an exciting activity to look forward to. 

At our Upholstery Workshops, our clients learn a range of new upholstery skills, take time to relax and get creative and at the end of the day have a bespoke piece of furniture to take home. An item to treasure forever and a reminder of the joy that comes from learning and experiencing new things.

We have a range of one day and two-day workshops available where we will provide guidance on how to make some of our signature pieces of furniture. There is our Crate Workshop, Stool Workshops, Deep Buttoned Footstool Workshops and Bench Workshops to choose from. These are great workshops to do with friends or individually. This is playing in style for creative grown-ups eager to have a fun escape from the pressures of everyday life.

If you are looking at buying a workshop for someone then you can.The upholstery workshops can be bought as a gift certificate if you don’t know the date you want to come, or if you are buying for another person and do not know the date they can attend. The recipient can redeem the voucher against a future workshop. You can buy your gift certificate here.

Or alternatively, if you know the date book onto one of our scheduled events you can see our live events here
