The British School of Upholstered Furniture is based just outside Henley on Thames in the South Oxfordshire countryside. 

Amongst the industry the school is regarded as a centre of excellence in its teaching of upholstery in the UK.  

With an emphasis on experience at the bench, all AMUSF tutors at the school have long term practical experience running successful businesses, ensuring each student can benefit from their accumulated knowledge on both the practical and commercial sides of the trade.


Gregory and Gareth are the only two tutors nationwide currently teaching the AMUSF diploma programme who are certificated members of the Guild of Traditional Upholsterers having sat and passed the exam. 

We offer a comprehensive range of highly creative and hands-on courses for students looking to learn the craft of upholstery, hone their skills or try a new hobby.


Newsflash: Due to the evolving situation with Coronavirus we've taken the difficult decision to postpone our March 13th & 14th open days and masterclasses until later in the Spring. 

If you would like to book a 1-2-1 appointment to view the facilities and meet Gareth and Greg we're still teaching (for now!) and are happy to arrange viewings on an individual basis. 


"I can't imagine that there is another upholstery tutor out there that would inspire me as much as Gareth or Greg have over the last three years.


The quality of teaching is fantastic and the course goes above and beyond what is on the AMUSF curriculum.


The insider knowledge and appreciation for detail and high standards has been invaluable."
