Our new Diploma course offers students a number of pathways to reach your goals in upholstery whilst preparing you with all the latest materials and processes used today.  
3 teaching modules are delivered over the academic year from a wide range of options and students are guided throughout the full scale projects (no sample exercises) to achieve finished usuable pieces  
Students can choose all their pathways at the beginning of the year or decide the next route once one is completed 
These new pathways have been created to equip students with a wide variety of skills to ensure they are confident to work in industry using todays modern methods and materials as well as keeping the much loved traditional methods alive
