Hamilton & Hodson offer one- and two-day courses throughout the year that will give students, new and experienced, the space and opportunity to develop a passion for upholstery.  Under close supervision, you will develop the skills to upholster accurately and creatively and come away with an amazing sense of achievement (as well as your very own piece of furniture that you restored!).

Our courses are based on a “Bring your own project” format.  You can work on a piece of furniture that you already have and want to restore to its former glory or you can bring something that’s caught your eye whilst trawling auctions and second-hand shops.  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 three students for each day, so you will be closely supported by one tutor to realise your new upholstery ambition and share ideas with other students.  You can book for one or two days or for a series of days to develop your knowledge and skills to a greater level and tackle more complex pieces.  No prior experience is required.
