Welcome to Upholstery Courses South West website. This page was previously used to inform students of my upholstery weekend courses held in the South West UK


I'm Leigh-Anne Treadwell, a professional, qualified and experienced traditional Upholsterer, Tutor, Founder and Director of the Bristol Upholstery Collective, who you may recognise from BBC One show 'Money For Nothing' and BBC 2 'David & Jays Touring Toolshed'.


I studied my certificate in Traditional & Modern upholstery in 2007.

Since starting up my own creative business in 2010, I have enjoyed designing and delivering enjoyable learning experiences across the South West, teaching at Plymouth College of Art, Bristol City College, and a multitude of inspiring venues in between.

Now Director of UP Studios CIC in Bristol, home to Bristol UPholstery Collective, we share our space with Artists and creative industries passionate about collaboration and education for well being.


I'm delighted you are interested in the beautifully creative and skill of traditional upholstery, and would very much like to invite you to join us on a course that meets your every upholstery wish.


Although, I must warn you - Upholstery is highly addictive!


It would be wonderful to share my skills with you soon...


With Warm Wishes,
