Sewing Weekend - 14th & 15th September 2024

  • Absolute beginners welcome!

    This course has been especially designed by the Team at Bristol Upholstery Collective to help you complete your armchair with a Box Cushion and Scatter Cushion.

    Please go at your OWN PACE and not be disappointed if your scatter cushion has to be completed at home. We prioritise the completion of the Box cushion, as students usually want to finish a window seat or Armchair project.

    "A thoroughly enjoyable weekend... and extremely good value for money"

  • All courses require time and incur costs prior to its duration, in creating a wonderfully enjoyable learning experience for the participant, as a beginner/improver student, to gain maximum value for money and achieve advanced skill upholstery.


    Due to the nature of preparation involved, there can be no refund offered to the student if they can not attend the specific course once booked. Only if the tutor cancels the course for any unseen circumstances will a full refund be given within 30 days of the course cancellation.

    If you miss any classes, we cannot offer 'catch up' sessions due to the number of students enrolled and the complications of our teachers' schedules. If you need more time to complete a project, you will need to re-book another course or get in touch with us about suitable evening or weekend courses that may be available and that would suit your needs.

    Upholstery materials are to be bought in either half or full metre widths.

    Any materials used will be noted and charged for at student discount rate at the end of the term. This can be paid by card for a £1 charge or invoiced to your email address for transfer payment. Late payments may incur interest fees.



    Please note that the tutor can accept no responsibility for injuries taking place over the course duration. There is a small risk of non life- threatening injury, plasters are provided but will have to be administered by the student him/herself to adhere to health & safety regulations. Small cuts and pinpricks to the skin are occasionally expected.


    A health & safety talk will be given at the start of the course advising action and care to be taken at all times.


    Please ensure proper use of all tools during the workshop to ensure student safety and quality continuation of the tools owned by Bristol Upholstery Collective and fellow students.


    Please be considerate towards other students within the space and take care to work at a safe distance.


    Upholstery can be a physically demanding and strenuous activity. Students are responsible for communicating their needs and helping themselves to remain comfortable and free from risk of injury at all costs.


    A positive attitude is of upmost importance to ensure an enjoyable experience for all. Please be kind to yourself during challenging moments and remember you are learning an age-old process and are achieving advanced traditional upholstery skills to be practiced and proud of.


    Many Thanks for your co- operation and understanding.
