Long courses start the week of 26 September.  The longer courses are for career changers, but also for hobbyists who want to challenge themselves. Choose from  Traditional Upholstery (2 years), Modern Upholstery (1 year) and Furniture Restoration (1 year).  There are still places on these courses. Contact us for details stuff@theschoolofstuff.co.uk. We'll send you a course outline.

 

Evening classes start the week of 26 September. Sign up for a twelve week session here.

Monday: Project based Upholstery Bring a chair and we'll show you how to reupholster it

Tuesday: Cabinet Making Basic Skills Learn woodworking essentials and make a tulipwood toolbox

Thursday: Restore/Remake Bring something and we will fix it, upcycle it, restore it, or reconfigure it completely

 

The next Studio Saturday at The School of Stuff  is 24 September 2016. A one day session where you can bring pretty much anything furniture-wise and spend the day doing whatever you want with it. Upholster it, restore it, strip it, paint it, reconfigure it or turn it into firewood - whatever you like. Come and use our equipment, materials and, of course, expertise. Book here. The next one is 29 October.

 

The next Upholstery Taster Weekend is 5/6 November 2016. It is two day introduction to traditional upholstery, its techniques, materials and history, and the project for the weekend is a drop in seat. Use ours or bring your own. Book here.

 

You can buy courses as gifts and we offer School of Stuff gift vouchers. Have a look here. We have also got upholstery toolkits, a starter's one and a professional one which you can buy online here, and you can buy individual tools from us as well. Email for a price list.
