Manorhouse School of Upholstery
We are running classes again and have 2 spaces available from next week 22nd September.
If you are interested in a place on an afternoon class on either Tuesday or Wednesday from September 22nd or 23rd please contact Jan using the details at the bottom of this page.
Our workshop has been adapted for Covid restrictions with 8 individual workstations and toolsets available for individual student use in class.
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.
Our "Make a Footstool in a day" course runs on Saturdays and 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.
Finding Manorhouse is quite easy – driving down Thorpe Lane from Almondbury village we are the first turn on the right approximately 100 yards down Thorpe Lane. 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.
