The School of Upholstery is based in the medieval market town of Faversham in the Creek Creative Studios. Upholstery classes are held on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays and are limited to a maximum class size of five, ensuring School of Upholstery students have a higher level of tutor input time than at many other institutions. Each class has a slightly different time frame allowing students to develop their upholstery skills at their own pace and within their own time commitments.
The class tutor is Alex Law. Alex has been working as an upholsterer for 27 years and has over 10 years teaching experience; he has written two of the most successful upholstery step by step guides published in the last 20 years.
We also offer intensive masterclasses with visiting specialist tutors on topics including French Upholstery and Wood Finishing and Effects.
