Daytime & Evening Leisure Upholstery Classes

Our next leisure classes start in February. Contact us for more details!

Shoreditch Design Rooms, established in 2013, is a creative space where people can come and learn about furniture upholstery, restoration and design and can finish their course with their very own bespoke piece of furniture. 

You should bring your own furniture to work on during the class, but we can help you to decide on, or source, pieces that would be suitable. We teach absolute beginners to advanced students. You can work on a variety of different projects during a leisure course where you will be taught and taken through all the tips and techniques of this amazing trade in order to transform your furniture into something amazing!

UPHOLSTERY Leisure classes can include the following:

  • – Complete stripping down, and re-upholstery
  • – Just removing the top fabric and recovering
  • – Modern and traditional techniques
  • – Sewing (such as boxed cushions, piping, capped on seats and arms) using an industrial walking foot machine
  • – Basic wood restoration, cleaning, reviving and finishing and some frame repairs all of which we will cover as part of the course.
