"Let me teach you how to put life back into your loved furniture..." 


Welcome to Badger Upholstery

I am based in my workshop in Montpelier, Bristol. This is a vibrant and artistic area which is ideal for such a creative trade. I love sharing the upholstery skills I have learnt in the last 18 years of working around Bristol, on both traditional and modern upholstery.

Weekly workshop sessions or 2 day workshops. Bring your own piece of furniture or buy one of my own footstool

frames that allow you to learn a range of traditional skills.

Weekly Sessions

I run weekly sessions on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday mornings 9:30am - 12pm, and Monday and Wednesday afternoons

1pm-3:30pm. See the Booking Calendar for currently available dates.

Book in sets of termly sessions at £25 each - term lengths vary from 6-8 weeks

2 Day Workshops

I run intensive 2 day workshops once a month. Here you will have more time to get stuck into a larger project, or complete one of my footstools to learn a range of traditional skills.  Cost is £260 for 2 days including lunch.

See the workshop page for dates and availability

"My ideal relaxation is working on upholstery. I spend hours in junk shops buying furniture. I do all the upholstery work myself, and its like therapy"
