Traditional Upholstery School

The Traditional Upholstery School was founded in 2016 by Joanna Heptinstall to teach upholstery skills and lampshade making. Courses and workshops are designed to suit those looking to re-train and learn to upholstery to a professional standard, and also those who just want a creative and rewarding hobby. Our characterful, light, and spacious workroom in a Wiltshire village provides a creative and sociable teaching space. We aim to offer a friendly and supportive environment that allows students to flourish. Our small class sizes allow all our students to thrive and produce high-quality work, whether enjoying a satisfying hobby or working towards a new career.
