AMUSF accredited upholstery courses - Stages 1, 2 and 3
We are very proud that the Traditional Upholstery School is one of only a handful of centres approved by the Association of Master Upholsterers and Soft Furnishers.
The AMUSF has been responsible for promoting and maintaining the skills and heritage of the British upholstery industry for more than 70 years. It has approved Joanna and the Traditional Upholstery School as a training centre for the AMUSF Diploma, recognised as the most comprehensive upholstery qualification in the UK.
This is an expert course covering both traditional and modern techniques to a very high standard. It starts with the basics of upholstery, like drop-in seats and footstools, and eventually leads to learning complex skills like restoring an iron-framed armchair or a hand-tied sprung seat edge.
The Traditional Upholstery School offers training one day a week across the academic year to allow you the fit the three stages of AMUSF training round other commitments. Note that this superb, nationally recognised professional training is very much in demand. We are already taking bookings now for courses starting in September 2020.

Come along to our Open Day!
Thursday 30th April 2020 from 10.30am to 12 noon
Visitors are always welcome to pop in at the Traditional Upholstery School. On Thursday 30th April, we’re hosting a special morning when our doors will be open to anyone interested in learning more about the AMUSF Diploma.
We’ll explain what's involved in the course and give visitors a chance to meet tutors, chat to current students (always the best insight) and try one of our coffee bar stools for size. Information packs and enrollment forms will be available too. Email us if you are thinking of coming along so we know how many cakes to make.
Note: If you are unable to make the open morning do get in touch to arrange a chance to visit. We want to give you your undivided attention and will need to plan your visit around busy teaching days. Many thanks.
