Upholstery Reviews

“Fabulous day. I really enjoyed it. An excellent introduction to traditional upholstery techniques, and we all came away with an item that we could be really proud of. Mick explained everything really well and helped patiently when needed. Highly recommended.” – Fiona

“I can’t recommend this course highly enough. All those who attended received the most wonderful support and encouragement throughout the day.  To have such a talented upholsterer as Mick teaching us was a real privilege.  He was VERY patient and happy to step in and help whenever he was needed. Also, a big thank you to Suzi for organising and who was on hand throughout the day and gave us so much support, as well as endless supplies of refreshments!  Everything was done to make us as comfortable as possible.  I came away with an upholstered milking stool that I absolutely love and am now keen to attend another course and build on what I’ve achieved. Thank you so much.” – Catherine

“One of the most enjoyable courses I’ve been on. A completely new craft for me, we were able to experience a number of traditional upholstery processes, and our finished stools will be treasured forever I’m sure. Beautiful little items. The location at Cardigan Pizza Tipi was perfect for me. Close to home and a beautiful setting to enjoy a delicious lunch with new friends on the riverbank.” – Janet

“A lovely day. Clear and friendly instruction, beautiful location, and by the end of the day – a beautiful little stool to be proud to take home. I was quite surprised, and pleased, that there was such a large variety of high end fabrics to choose from – we were spoiled for choice.” – Fay

“Had a great day feeling fully immersed and learning a completely new skill. Covering the stool was straightforward enough to be doable, but still a really satisfying process explained very clearly. I’m very proud of what I achieved. The location was beautiful and refreshments flowed freely all day: fresh pizza for lunch was delicious. A really well-organised, well-run course which has inspired me to try a bit more upholstering!” – Alison

“Didn’t we do well! Fantastic day with Make it in Wales and Mick Sheridan. Cant wait to have a go at something else!” – Ruth

“Just wanted to say thank you for such a great day, Mick’s teaching was so patient and easy to follow and he has really given me the confidence and inspiration to tackle upholstering an item for my graduate show, thank you I hope there will be lots more to follow!” – Kathryn

“This was an excellent course. Mick was a brilliant teacher, lots of time for each of us as well as teaching us in groups too. He is a perfectionist and equally wanted us to achieve perfection. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and the company of the others in the group. It was a very inclusive and supportive group with the bonus of fun too. Thank you to Suzi too, I received a lovely welcome from her plus she provided us all with regular refreshments.” – Sue

“Excellent course with an excellent tutor. Thoroughly enjoyable!” – Cheryl

“Excellent course. Well paced, learnt a lot and went home with a piece of furniture that I could be really proud of. Although Mick says he’s not a teacher, he is good at explaining, and has a very good sense of when to intervene and when to let you get on with it. You make something under close guidance step-by-step, but feel that you have completed the article yourself. Highly recommended.” – Fiona
