Really good day with Sarah doing upholstery. Excellent tuition with only 3 in class. Very good catering with drinks and biscuits readily to hand. Great learning opportunity . I would thoroughly recommend


I chose to do a day course with Sarah as she is registered with the AMUSF and having recently completed the AMUSF Diploma myself, I recognised the level of proficiency required by Sarah to be accredited with them.
I went with the specific aim to practice traditional upholstery techniques and found her to be informative, attentive and highly professional.
I enjoyed the experience so much I then booked and completed a traditional lampshade making course with her and would not hesitate in attending another course.

Thanks so much.


I cannot recommend Sarah & her courses highly enough. Sarah is a patient and nurturing teacher. I was very nervous as I had no knowledge of upholstery. I was so pleased with the results and never thought I could produce a chair and footstool with such a professional finish.

Sarah’s knowledge and ability to instruct in a way you can understand is excellent. I’ve learnt so much and have booked my 3rd course in August.
Look forward to seeing you in the summer to make ‘coir clouds’,


After spending two days with Sarah on her traditional lampshade making course, I was inspired to learn the art of upholstery. I have completed a number of 5 week courses since July 2017. I feel that I am now ready to embark on a career in upholstery. I have loved my time at the farm in Sarah’s training room and her lunches are fabulous. I will be returning to Sarah for further expert tuition as my business progresses. Many thanks as always.


I first met Sarah when she upholstered a chair for me and was impressed by her professionalism. She is a really good teacher, has endless patience and the ability to convey knowledge in an understandable way. The two days were great fun and I felt the lampshade I left with was a really good standard. The lovely lunches and coffee breaks added to my enjoyment of this course.



This was my first time learning upholstery. The one day course was perfect for my first chair. Sarah is lovely and a great teacher. It has definitely made me want to learn more.

This was a perfect introduction to upholstery and so enjoyable.  Sarah’s teaching skills are very clear and easy to understand, I wasnt expecting to finish my chair, the day went so quickly and I was surprised at how much I learnt.
Fab lunch and lovely biscuits!!
