Upholstery Workshops with Intoo

A few months ago we decided to put all our knowledge and expertise together to pass on our experience to those who wish to learn upholstery.

To suit all levels, we have developed structured upholstery courses that start from a basic beginner’s course to more advanced courses.

A modern upholstery course teaches you a fast paced way of learning to upholster using the latest techniques. On a modern upholstery course you will learn how to use a pneumatic staple gun, use stretch elastic webbings, use edge roll & understand which foam to use & how to use it to suit the furniture you are working on.

A traditional upholstery course uses natural organic materials such as horsehair & coconut fiber, hessian & learning to use tacks for fixing. It can also involve learning a sophisticated stitching technique to make firm stitched edges. It is more time consuming & labor intensive, but involves real manual skill.

Here is a snippet of what our happy students have learnt and achieved on the course.:
