Summer is always a great time to have a clear out, tidy the garden or do some decorating. And now you can learn the skills to transform an old piece of upholstered furniture into a beautiful bespoke piece for your home or as a gift.

Come on, it's such a great feeling to learn a new craft and watch your project be transformed.

Are you ready to learn some new skills? Take on a new project? Create a beautiful bespoke piece of furniture for your home?

Well I certainly hope you are!! Upholstery by Erica-Jane courses are the perfect place for you to achieve all of the above.

We run 1 day workshops, week end workshops and 4, 6, or 8 week evening or daytime classes to suit you at our workshop in Swindon.

Day time and evening classes are 3hrs long, and cost £35,  but I offer a reduction of £20 if you pay for 4 in advance! 

The courses include use of all tools required, teaching, storage of your project for the duration of the course, tea and coffee and the purchase of all materials in small quantities and at cost price. I don't stock top fabrics but do hold accounts with many suppliers and can order fabric for you if required. (Look at Sunbury Designs, Warwick Fabrics, Marton Mills, Fryetts, Ross)

All courses and workshops are suitable for complete beginners as well as those with experience. You can start with a small project and then transfer the skills you learn to a larger project............there will be no stopping you once you get started!

We teach you traditional upholstery skills, no foam or staples here!

But, if your project does have foam and staples, don't panic!! We can work with that too, your project will look amazing when completed.
