Our next "Make a Footstool in a day" course is on May 8th, and there are only 2 spaces left to book - follow this link for details and how to book . The course runs on Saturdays and at £135 is a fantastic introduction to upholstery. The day is very "hands on" and will lead to a completed footstool in 6 hours, ready to take home and use. 

Based in Almondbury just outside Huddersfield our weekly schedule of morning, afternoon and evening upholstery courses and soft furnishing courses allow you to develop your skills in our bright and spacious workshop and in a friendly environment. Students learn modern and traditional upholstery techniques at all levels so there is something for everyone. Local shops in Almondbury village provide a variety of opportunities to buy lunch or browse for gifts and essentials.

The sign is for Thorpe Grange Gardens and immediately on the left is a driveway with a high stone wall on the left and a low stone wall with iron railings on the right. This short driveway leads to two gates. Drive through the entrance and Manorhouse is the first single storey building on the left.
