AMUSF UPHOLSTERY DIPLOMA
The AMUSF Diploma is a three-stage progressive programme which is suitable for all levels, wether you have picked up a sewing needle, hammer or staple gun before or not. Stage 1 starts with the basics of a drop-in seat, students then progress to large traditionally upholstered armchairs, then onto tailoring skills required for mid-century modern furniture. Each stage is intensive & has at least 3 assessed exam pieces alongside an extensive set of exercises.
The emphasis of this programme is the development of the student as an individual craftsperson, while supporting the development of transferable skills. Students are encouraged to develop & build on their skills at each stage, providing a holistic learning experience leading to the attainment of the Diploma at the end of the 3 stages. Each student is encouraged to push themselves creatively & with the quality of their work.
Certificates are awarded by the AMUSF on the successful completion of each stage. By the end of the third stage students will have achieved the full AMUSF Diploma and with practice will be equipped to take on the challenges of upholstering a diverse range of furniture, producing high quality work stamped with individuality and creativity.
As upholsterers, we are able to offer a sustainable service, bringing skill, quality & better ecological choices to our clients.
Upholstery is a sustainable way to keep good quality furniture being produced & bringing life back to old furniture. Having the skills to reduce waste is the only way to go if we are to keep our heritage crafts & artisanal ways of life alive.
