What is going on during November and December at Semper Hopkins Upholstery?
We have a rather busy few months coming up in our workshop in Scholar Green, Cheshire, on the run up to Christmas with many of our Upholstery Workshops being held, along with creating custom made furniture and reupholstering old pieces of furniture for our customers.
Ever since taking up Upholstery, I have found it to be such a good outlet for myself. Of course, it is now my career, but it is something I love doing and find an escape in – especially during the winter months. If you are looking for a new hobby to take up this winter but you are not sure what – give Upholstery a go.
Picking up a new craft will do wonders for your wellbeing and provide a distraction from busy day to day life. Choosing a creative hobby can help reduce the symptoms of anxiety and stress and can actually provide you with the opportunity to wind down and relax. Learning any new skill also allows cognitive growth and can improve concentration, so why not start now?
The most popular reason people choose upholstery is the huge sense of personal achievement people feel walking away with a new piece of furniture. Being able to completely disconnect from the outside world for the day. Immersing themselves into a creative experience and learning to turn a pile of materials into something they are proud of. Seeing the tangible results of their hard work which they will have a reminder off for a lifetime rather than ticking a few things off the daily list.
Not only are the health benefits convincing enough to take up Upholstery, but the opportunity to be able to learn a skill set for life is what really made me love it. Once you learn how to make one piece of furniture, the list is endless, and you will be able to make completely bespoke pieces for your home.
Trying to find furniture to match your house’s exact decor can be difficult. From finding the right colour, to finding a fabric you like, furniture on the high street is not unique to your tastes. With our Upholstery Workshops you get the best of both worlds. You get to choose which piece of furniture you want to make, what colour fabric you would like and then you will get taught how to upholster.
At the end of the day, you will leave feeling proud of the bespoke piece of furniture you have made for your home, and skills you can use again and again in the future.
