Out of fashion furniture gets a makeover in my workshop. I like to explore new uses for traditional materials and techniques.

I work as a traditional upholsterer, trading as The ChairWoman, and sometimes acquire pieces which are perhaps no longer fashionable or attractive. I like to realize the potential for change to give them new desirability, and I particularly enjoy experimenting with both traditional and unexpected materials and techniques to bring about transformation. I love the creativity and feel it also helps me understand and expand the scope of my traditional craft better.

STUDIO: Upholstery workshop at back of house. Work in progress, tools and materials will be visible, and items for sale displayed.
