Finch & Toad Upholstery Classes & Workshops in Spalding, North Norfolk, Norwich & Kings Lynn



Dates: Various Fridays & Saturdays - see below

Location: Various - see below

Cost: £55 (£60 for courses at Norfolk Creative Arts)


This upholstery workshop is suitable for experienced or non-experienced upholsterers alike. Classes are informal and tuition will be given to guide you through your upholstery project. We can give you guidance on what can be completed at home should you not finish your project during the day. 


This workshop includes the use of tools and sundries such as tacks, threads etc.  You will have access to the tools and equipment required to use for both modern and traditional upholstery projects. Other materials apart from top fabric can be purchased on the day. You will need to bring your own top fabric suitable for your project.


If new to upholstery, it’s advisable to start with a beginner project such as a drop seat, piano stool or footstool so that you have the basic skills ready to tackle larger projects.  


Those of you with prior upholstery experience may want to come along for a bit of encouragement with a project you are currently working on.


This workshop includes a constant flow of refreshments, however, lunch is not included so please bring a packed lunch with you. For workshops in Spalding, food can be purchased from the onsite café .

Please wear shoes that cover your toes and avoid wearing your best clothing - just in case.
