Frequently Asked Questions


Q: I have just started learning upholstery, which course is suitable for me?

A: The New York 3 Master's 2020 is aimed at those who already have a sound knowledge of upholstery, but please contact us so we can discuss your individual needs. Everyone is different and sometimes the tutors will take someone with less experience. 

Q:If the course /workshop is oversubscribed will you be taking names in case of cancellations?

A: Yes please email us if you are interested in going on the waiting list for any of our courses or workshops

Q: If due to unforeseen circumstances I have to cancel, can someone else take my place to avoid cancellation charges?

A: Yes we are happy to make name changes, but please check with us before offering your place so that those on the waiting list get the offer of your place first. If someone else does takes your place we can offer you a refund of all monies paid, less a $50 administration fee.

Q: Do I need to bring any tools with me?

A: It is not necessary to bring any as they will be provided for you. However, should you wish to bring any of your own tools,  PLEASE MAKE SURE they are marked with your name. Upholstery Education takes no responsibility for any personal belongings that go missing while attending the course. 

Q:Will I be able to purchase any of the tools or supplies we use after the course ?

A: Yes, after every course we give all the student s the opportunity to purchase CS Osborne tools at very favorable prices including a very wide selection of curved needles and where possible we sell any extra supplies we have such as the Horse Hair.

Q: What other courses will you be offering in the future?

A: We will be offering a wide selection from our Master Classes, Passementerie workshops, Modern(foam) upholstery courses, as well as furniture restoration workshops, and more. Make sure you sign up for all our latest news.

Q: How can I connect with other students who may be attending one of your courses ?

A: We respect the privacy of all our students and will not, under any circumstances give out private information.
