Ministry of Upholstery

Classic Footstool Courses, now in North Yorkshire!

Have you always wanted to attend one of the Ministry of Upholstery courses but can’t get to their Manchester workshop? Then look no further, Now you can attend a course here in Tadcaster, North Yorkshire. I am an official course provider having graduated from the Ministry of Upholstery and received Anthony Devine's stamp of approval, and can now offer one of his much loved footstool courses.  

The classic footstool course is a one-day extravaganza combining painting techniques with upholstery, perfect for beginners. You will start the day with a solid hardwood frame and throughout the day you will follow my step by step guidance, learning all about the tools and materials used, as well as covering lots of techniques from webbing, applying hessian and wadding, cutting fabric and corners. You will also be introduced to basic painting techniques and have an opportunity to choose from a wide range of colours to paint your legs to match your fabric choice! At the end of the day’s course you will be able to take your footstool home to show off your new-found skills!

The course includes everything you need to make your stool, you just need to supply one metre of fabric. Class sizes are kept small so that you benefit from greater one on one teaching and if you then fancy making another footstool for your friend or family member (and trust us, you will be asked!) then kits, containing everything you need to make the stools, will be available to purchase on the day.  Treat yourself to a new skill or purchase a gift voucher course for a friend!

NEW COURSE: Large footstool course - 2 days

This is a 2 day course in which you will create your own unique, deep buttoned footstool. 

This course is suitable for beginners, but will take you to a more advanced level of upholstery, using the same techniques you see on a chesterfield sofa!. 

You will be amazed at the results that you can achieve with my guidance.

The days of this course are flexible and you can contact me to pick a suitable date.
