Wendy Shorter Interiors upholstery courses and soft furnishings courses, day and evening upholstery classes


Based near St. Albans in Hertfordshire, we offer a range of upholstery courses, soft furnishings courses and the Association of Master Upholsterers & Soft Furnishers qualification courses, as well as day and evening classes. Since opening in 2006 we have established ourselves as one of the most successful training centres in the UK.  Whether you want to start your own small business or just upcycle, recycle your own projects as a hobby, or making your own curtains, roman blinds and cushions, we have something for you.


All our tutors are professional upholsterers and soft furnishers who bring a wealth of knowledge and experience.  Our aim is to nurture, foster and inspire new talent by supporting and encouraging students throughout their studies in order that they attain the skills and levels of excellence required to forge a successful career in the furnishings industry or to support them in a creative hobby working on their own chosen projects in a relaxed and friendly learning environment.


Quality with Excellence in Teaching is at the heart of our upholstery and soft furnishings training.  Read more



Many of our past students have gone on to develop successful careers in the industry either working for themselves or for others.  Some can even be seen on television: E. J. Osborne presenter of the BBC's "Money for Nothing"; Harriet Page & Charlotte Harrison from the Bristol Upholstery Collective and Ray Clarke all participate in the "Money for Nothing" programme.  Fiona Baker of Harrison Moss Interiors did all the furnishings for the BBC's DIYSOS Welwyn Garden City programme.  Louise Boyland and Maria Willis now both run their own training centres and Susie Wigg has a very successful bespoke curtain making company.  Read more
