There is an opportunity for 10 students to learn the skills of upholstering in the school. Please email if you think this is something you might be interested in.


Are you interested in learning how to upcycle a piece of furniture? If so we have had an inquiry from a parent about running a course on this with TY students. Please email if you think this is something you would like to take part in.
