Upholstery Workshops in Chester

Our upholstery workshops are held in our dedicated first floor studio at the front of our premises in Handbridge, Chester.  The workshops aim to provide students with a good introduction to upholstery.

We cover an understanding of the tools that are used during the workshop, the various materials and the importance of health and safety when tackling projects.
We provide all the materials, tools, fabrics and furniture needed to complete the course.

Please note, upholstery does require a level of strength in the hands when removing tacks/staples and using staple guns.  If you are unsure whether you will be able to participate please give us a call and discuss your needs with one of our friendly team.
