The one day workshops are perfect if you want a taster into the world of upholstery. Step away from the daily grind and unleash your creative side. Learn a new skill and have the instant satisfaction of making a small piece of furniture.
You can also buy a place at the workshop for a creative loved one. It will make the perfect sustainable gift if you are looking for something fun and unique.
The workshop is an introduction to the craft. You will learn about the tools and materials needed for upholstery. You will be taught techniques like applying foam, fabric, cutting corners on fabric, making and applying buttons & more.
We supply you with the tools & materials for the course, you will just need to bring 1m of fabric.
You will be taught on the day by Emma, an experienced upholster and the Director of Semper Hopkins Upholstery (read Emma’s story here).
We keep the class size to no more than six people so you will get lots out of the day.
All the frames and materials for the course are prepared in house by Ian (Emma’s Dad).
The workshop is held from our beautiful workshop a converted Chapel in Scholar Green, a peaceful setting in the Cheshire countryside.
