Upholstery leisure classes

Are you a creative enthusiast and would like to try your hand at upholstery? Flamingo Upholstery’s leisure classes are a great opportunity to transform a piece of furniture and to learn some new skills!

In my fully equipped workshop, I teach in small groups of maximum 3 students at a time, so there is plenty of individual guidance. I will guide you through your project, from stripping the upholstery down to how to build it up again and upholster the top fabric. You may purchase the materials needed to rebuild your chair or stool from the workshop, so no need to source it yourself! You can bring your own fabric, though I have some remnants you can choose from or sample books you can order from.

Evening leisure classes

This is your chance to give your old piece of furniture a new lease of life and see if upholstery is for you! Come for one, two or more classes, whatever suits you and your project best.

On Wednesday evenings, from 6 pm till 9 pm, people can bring their own small piece of furniture to re-upholster. A drop-in seat, foot stool, piano stool, or something similar is ideal to start with. You will create a completely new look, ready to be admired and used.

Materials needed can be purchased through the workshop on the day. You may need to bring your own fabric if you want to complete on the day of class.

Places are limited to 3 people per evening, so booking in advance is necessary to secure a place. Contact me for booking info. Contact

Costs: £25 per evening.
