If you wish to attend, please book early to avoid disappointment. Places will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. If you prefer to organise a separate group class, on alternative dates, please get in touch and we will try to accommodate this.


Once your place is confirmed, we can send an invoice to pay by card, by bank transfer or if you prefer you could pay at the showroom.  


We look forward to welcoming you to our classes.  


Best wishes

In addition, we are planning a series of online classes that subscribers can work their way through to learn caning and traditional upholstery.

If enough people show interest in learning traditional upholstery techniques then we will consider how and when to provide additional classes. Send us your contact details below in order to register your interest.
