Mostly, yes.  All evening classes and most day classes should be paid for before the start of the course.  If you have booked your place will not be secure until you have paid.  You should pay on the website through Paypal when you book. Our longer courses, such as the two year Professional Traditional Upholstery Course can be paid for term by term in advance.

Yes, our booking system enables you to pay securely by credit or debit card through Paypal.  We can also take payment by bank transfer (that's the way we like the best), or you can do it the old-fashioned way and send us a cheque.

All the School of Stuff teachers are working practitioners, so they are furniture restorers, cabinet-makers, fabric printers, experienced crafters, upholsterers, basket-makers and so on.  But they are also gifted teachers with experience of sharing their skills.

Yes, there is storage space at the School of Stuff, though it is limited, and we would encourage you not to bring large projects.  If they are too big they might get rejected.

For most of our classes materials are included in the course fee.  If there is an exception to this it will be listed in the bookings section.  For the upholstery classes, all the structural materials are included, but you will have to provide your own trimmings (braid or fringe) and top cover (the outer fabric).
