​The Traditional Upholstery School is one of a handful of centres approved by the Association of Master Upholsters and Soft Furnishers to provide training toward its industry-leading qualification, the AMUSF Diploma. This professional-standard course is taught in three stages, each involving around 210 hours tuition, over one day for 35 weeks of the year. Both traditional and modern techniques are covered to a very high standard. Training 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. All our one-year courses are based around the terms of a normal school year, starting in the first week in September and running through to mid-July.
