I attended the week long beginners’ upholstery course where I made a beautiful footstool and chaise lounge in my own fabrics. Norman is a very experienced, friendly teacher and answered all my questions and gave me plenty of future advice. It is a very flexible working environment and I was very surprised at how much information I learnt in the week without being too overloaded. I am hooked and can’t wait to start my next piece of furniture. I would recommend this upholstery course to anybody and look forward to continuing to work with Norman in the future for guidance on other pieces. Thank you!
