Our upholstery workshops

Our upholstery workshops welcome all skill levels, from beginners to those with more ambitious projects.  You can learn and be inspired by others as well as the tutors.

The workshops at The Fisherrow Centre, Musselburgh:-

When you come to the workshop:-

  • Bring your chair, stripped of old materials and with wobbly joints fixed.
  • Bring your final fabric and trimming.
  • We provide tools.
  • We can provide additional materials (any costs are payable on the day).
  • Tea, coffee and cake will be waiting for you.
  • Bring a picnic lunch.

“Really enjoyed yesterday’s class.  Re-upholstered a little chair that had belonged to my late Nana and it was very rewarding to revitalise it.  Friendly, able tutors who gave everyone all the help they needed to achieve excellent results on a huge array of projects from fairly simple to very complicated.  Highly recommend.”

“Wonderful class with fantastic 1:1 tuition and space to learn.  Cake is a real treat as is the chat.  I’ve been back 8 times now as my chair was a big project but it’s been so worth it.”

If you need to cancel:

  • You can change the date at no extra cost.
  • You will receive a full refund if you let us know by 9pm on the Wednesday before the workshop.
  • You will receive 50% of your workshop cost if you cancel after 9pm on the Thursday before the Saturday workshop.
  • Our workshops run on Saturdays, so please make your payment by the Wednesday of that week, at the latest.
  • In reality, we are often more flexible than that because we keep a waiting list, so it isn’t usually a problem if someone cancels late.
