The Association of Master Upholsterers and Soft Furnishers

The Upholstery Qualification is delivered in three stages with each stage being a qualification in its own right and will be certificated separately. These qualifications can only be delivered by an AMUSF Approved Training Centre. The diploma program is designed to teach students the fundamental basics of upholstery to a high standard, where each piece worked on utilises what was studied in the preceding project and then adds to that understanding.

We deliver each stage over 247 hours with 38 days tuition.


We run a non profit scheme on all materials and tools bought through the school, our aim is to help students understand the true cost of materials used in the trade right from the start. Students are welcome to supply their own materials, although we do stock everything needed at close to trade cost. Tools are at trade. 

Our current price list can be seen here Price list

Course fees are £2800 plus Vat per level/year which includes all tuition costs and materials/ frames of practice pieces.

Please look at each stage in the drop down menu to see what materials and frames are included or must be paid for by the student. Much of this is included in course fees.

AMUSF classes are one day per week over the academic year.
