Due to popular demand, I am delighted to be able to offer this exciting 2 day course for beginners. 


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

This course is absolutely 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.

At the end of the day’s course you will be able to take your beautiful ottoman 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-to-one teaching. Treat yourself to a new skill or purchase a gift voucher course for a friend!
