Hello! I run the Old School Club, a baby-friendly place in Battersea to learn different crafts & skills such as sewing, crochet, photography, etc. I provide a creche so mums can bring their babies whilst they work or learn a new skill. One of the courses I wanted to add is upholstery. I have had many enquiries and I think it is a great idea. I am looking for someone that can do an "Basic" upholstery course to start with to run for 2 or 3 hours a week during 4 to 6 weeks (I am open to…Continue

I finished a 2 week intensive training course at Barnett Upholstery. What a great experience!! Bob was such a good instructor and I learned so much. It was nice to be able to work on my project and have Bob there to help me through, but not do the work for me:) Also, I enjoyed meeting other members of the class. They had various projects and Bob would take time to show the class a technique that he thought we could all benefit from. Highly recommend this course if you want to start…Continue

Hello fellow upholsterers,
I am looking for an upholsterer to take on quite a large amount of work. I have recently won a contract to re-upholster the furniture for a London restaurant, but the job is too large for me to take on alone. I am looking for a company to take on the work, and I will manage the process, dealing with the client, pick and source all fabrics etc.
The company that takes on the work will need to be able to do a quick turn around on the…Continue

BBC 2 are currently broadcasting a series called Hidden Treasures, presented by Griff Rhys Jones. He has the enviable task of travelling the globe, meeting, seeing and witnessing the creation of beautiful art & textiles created by some of the poorest people in the world. I missed Episode 1 & 2 which covered Australian Art and African Art respectively but did catch last nights viewing on Indian Art & Textiles. We were treated to a world of richly embroidered floor cloths and the…Continue

Sunbury Antiques, Kempton Market is a Bi-monthly antiques market. For calendar dates and further information, google…Continue

Oh what a week, what a week!! to date one of our busiest. We planned to be shut but hey when the students come knocking, what can you do? We get enquiries from an ecclectic group of poeple and aside from the teaching, we have the opportunity to meet some very interesting characters. This week Vanessa & Gillian came through our doors. Two lovely ladies who booked a week intensive. Vanessa to strip and recover two chairs and Gillian to make and recover a 6ft deep buttoned headboard…Continue

Cars, women & politicians. All things you would expect to find in a racey novel. Made in Dagenham, the storey of the Dagenham women who in 1968 took on their bosses at the Ford car plant demonstrates the ability of woman to get stuck in and fight the good fight. The women stitched together the covers on the Cortinias and Zephrys coming of the production line and had to have a minimum of two years machinist experience. Inspite of this, they were not given the same grading or pay structure…Continue

In these modern times, the daily ritual of receiving and opening Her Majestys post comes and goes without fanfare. With the advent of email and texts, our postmen & postmistresses are resigned to being bearers of bills, invitations to attend a sale and information on the new American Embassy and the Battersea Power Station developments down the road.
So Sonia brought our post in (usually left in pigeon hole at front reception) and the said ritual was performed, with all…Continue
