Start your upholstery journey here…

Hamilton and Hodson are delighted to present a series of short upholstery courses for 2020-21. These one- or two-day sessions will give students, new and experienced, the space and opportunity to develop their passion for upholstery. Taught by Nicky Hamilton and Erica Fredricksson, who have over 30 years’ combined experience, you will receive close supervision and guidance and learn new skills to upholster creatively and accurately.  Either Nicky or Erica will be teaching, so the tutor/student ratio will be 1:3.

Book for one or two days or for a series of sessions to develop your knowledge and skills to a greater level. We will support students to upholster a broad range of furniture, learning a variety of techniques with both traditional and modern methods. Nestled in the train station at Redland, our workshop is a wonderful space to learn a new skill, use your imagination and focus on a creative project. We only book 3 students for each day, so you will be closely supported to realise your new upholstery ambition and share ideas with other students. No prior experience is required; we can accommodate complete beginners and those with some upholstery experience. Please download this file for more information.
