Welcome to our Manchester Workshop

Welcome to Ministry of Upholstery! We are the U.K.s leading modern upholstery school and our manifesto is to make upholstery accessible to everyone!
If you’re new to upholstery, then our famous weekend Queen Anne Footstool Masterclass maybe just the ticket. Or if you have an old unloved chair in the corner of your room, then you can choose one of our Bring Your Own Courses and benefit from our guidance and expert tuition to transform it.  Perhaps you’re bored of walking around furniture stores to find you don’t like anything? Not only do we offer a large range of chair and sofa frames all ready for you to upholster to your exact requirements, but we can also make bespoke items to suit your needs! Maybe you’re thinking about a career change and are looking for an in-depth course that can equip you with the requisite skills to go on and start your own business? If so, then look no further than our Business Course. So whether you want to start a new hobby, tackle a one off piece of furniture to suit your home or embark upon a new career, we will definitely have a course to suit.
We do not dictate that you must have any level of experience in order to tackle any of our courses! You will always be given a full induction, covering all the tools of the trade, including the all-important pneumatic staple gun. We will guide you through every step of the process and you will be amazed by what you can achieve! We encourage total beginners to strive for that professional look. If you have never tried upholstery before, but you want to make a sofa, just go for it!
