Bring your own upholstery project course

Have you got an upholstery project but don’t know where start? Get help and attend our brand new ‘Bring your own’ upholstery course hosted by Upholsterer and Creative Director, Simion Hawtin-Smith.

Simion will provide you with all the advice and tools you need to give your piece of furniture, a new lease of life. Whether it is an Ercol chair, an armchair, a cocktail chair or even a footstool, you are guaranteed to create something special.

Our ‘bring your own’ classes are small and limited to 4 people, so you will have plenty of teaching time with Simion. All materials are included except replacement foam seating and fire retardant Calico or Crib 5 wool interliner. This can be purchased on the day. All you need to bring is your project and fabric of choice.
