Finch and Toad courses run at various venues in Norfolk,
Cambridgeshire , Leicestershire and Lincolnshire. Each course is designed to enable novices to master basic upholstery skills and can be adapted to help more experienced upholsterers develop their skills if requested.
Courses are informal but busy and class sizes kept small to ensure that students receive as much one to one as possible. Some skills within the taster and beginners sessions will be taught in the form of demonstrations.
Lamp shade making courses are great for anyone who would like to learn a new skill within a morning or evening and group sizes can be larger. Courses will be run at various venues but also can be brought to your home as part of a hen weekend or other party occasion.
Upholstery like so many traditional skills takes years to become a master but a keen attitude combined with a foundation of the core techniques and skills is a good starting point.
All workshop courses will be taught by Lee Deary ( see about page) and details of the courses can be found by clicking on the relevant section on this page. This page will also be regularly updated with new dates and venues.
