UPHOLSTERED FURNITURE PROJECTS
Plan and make a piece of upholstered furniture under tutor guidance
You choose your project and we guide you through the process of planning frame construction and upholstery, making drawings, sourcing timber and materials and then making your project in the workshop
LEARN HOW TO:
- Plan and make a furniture frame to your design
- Add new upholstery skills to your repertoire
Upholstered furniture projects vary a lot in the time in takes to complete them. Having completed the level 1 and 2 courses with us, you will be aware that making furniture by hand requires time and patience and the number of classes you require will depend on your project and work speed.

HOW TO BOOK IN:
We operate individual waiting lists for places in these classes. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to one or more waiting lists. We will contact you when you get to the top of a list and we can offer you a start date for your course. Please also provide a phone number as sometimes spaces become available at short notice.
When you accept a start date, we will send you a payment agreement using the WorldPay FuturePay facility. This will enable us to take payment from a card for 2 classes every 2 weeks in advance. There is no obligation to complete the course but we do require 2 weeks notice if you wish to leave the class.
INCLUDED IN THE COURSE FEE:
Tutoring, tool use and basic sundries only.
You will need to purchase your own timber and upholstery top fabric (with our guidance)
Upholstered furniture sundries and off-the-roll upholstery materials such as hessian, calico, wool felt, interliner, and latex will be available to buy at the Makershed in small quantities and as required for your project
HOW OUR CLASSES WORK:
All of our classes have a student:tutor ratio of 6:1. Most are mixed level, which means you will likely be in a group of people all doing different projects.
Tuition is given on an individual basis at each student’s bench to ensure a fully COVID-secure working and learning environment.
When you are approaching the end of your Level 3 project, you will be given the option to keep your class space in order to take further courses or complete additional projects.
