Do you have your own project that you’d like to tackle? Perhaps it’s a chair that’s the perfect size but the wrong fabric, maybe it’s a sentimental piece that you want to keep but it just doesn’t fit in or perhaps it’s a sofa that quite frankly has seen better days and needs a complete overhaul! Whatever it is that you already have, we now have a course to suit.

Our Bring Your Own Course is now available to book for 3, 5, 7 or 10 days, dependant on the size of your project. Don’t worry if you don’t finish in your allotted time, you can always tag on extra days if you need them. However many days you go for, you’ll receive the same intensive but light-hearted tuition in modern upholstery. We will teach you how to completely strip your project. We will introduce you to the tools and materials used in the upholstery world, covering a full introduction to the pneumatic staple gun and how to use it safely. Once you feel confident, we will then talk you through your options for re-upholstery and you will then receive step-by-step tuition on how to re-upholster your piece to desired specification.

This course is aimed at anyone who has a piece they would like to re-upholster. It doesn’t matter whether you’ve never even seen a staple gun before, let alone handled one. Equally, if you’ve already got some experience and are looking to build on it. Whether you want to start a new hobby, just simply tackle a one-off piece or tick something off your bucket list, we are here to help!

People work at different speeds and come with different levels of experience but we would advise to book as follows:

3 Days

  • Footstool
  • Headboard
  • Dining Chairs (set of 4)
  • Italian style chair
  • Louis style chair
  • Ottoman

5 Days

  • Small wingback armchair
  • Small Chaise Longue
  • Nursing chair
  • Fireside Chair

7 Days

  • Large Wingback Chair
  • Armchair (not Chesterfield)
  • Love Seat
  • Some Simple Two Seaters

10 Days

  • Sofa
  • Chesterfield Sofa
  • Chesterfield Armchair

You can of course plan to bring more than one project, which is absolutely fine. Please bear in mind that if you wish to do this, that we operate a one-in-one-out policy.

If you have any queries about the suitability of your project, then please email us a picture to [email protected] and we will be happy to help.

    I can’t recommend this course enough – it is absolutely fab. As a complete beginner I was a little nervous at jumping straight in with a big chair to revitalise, but Anthony was just brilliant and patient. I learned so much and had a fantastic time. The workspace is superb, everyone is so friendly and the tea and cakes keep you going!! Can’t wait to try another course now…

    I loved this course would like to do it again!

  3. 5 out of 5

    What a brilliant course. I was a complete beginner and wanted to learn as I worked. I stripped the chair layer by layer and reconstruction became a mix of traditional and modern techniques and though I booked additional days to complete the chair it was well worth every penny. I’d chosen a modern tartan fabric so matching was tricky but the finished chair looks fantastic. Anthony, Paul and everyone in the group were so supportive and patient as they led me step by step to the end. Already purchased/planning my next project. Beware it’s addictive.

    Really enjoyed the course and brought my own project a winged back chair. This is only my second project and I managed to complete it but I will put that down to the fantastic tuition I received. Recommend Ministry of Upholstery to anyone wanting to learn upholstery.

    I did this course as a complete beginner and learned so much from Anthony and Paul. They are so knowledgeable and patient. I loved that they pushed me to do a good job even getting me to redo bits that weren’t quite right! I was delighted with the finished chair, as was my friend who had lent me her battered chair to practice on.
    Wendy is right – it is addictive! I have since been back for the footstool weekend, which was great fun.
    What next I wonder?..

    Urgent last minute birthday pressie mission – Susie sorted it all in double quick time, even managing to confirm short notice dates! Excellent!

  7. 5 out of 5

    I brought my deep button footstool and three cushions to this course. I booked 3 days but ended up using 6! (It took one day to strip the footstool!) Paul, Dennis and Anthony were very patient with me and the results were fantastic. Thanks to all not forgetting Susie and Popppy! I’ll be back x
