Mary's Chairs specialises in upholstery tuition, upholstery commissions and friendship through fabric, creativity and tea and biscuits, near Abingdon on the Oxfordshire Berkshire borders.

Learn Upholstery


Mary's Chairs run upholstery classes that are different from other teaching venues.  Learn at your own pace, on your own piece with a high level of professional, personal tuition, in small groups where friendships are formed.  Attend weekly to complete one project, or continue onto more complex pieces, with the individual attention required to guarantee a professional finish. 

Upholstery Commissions


Mary’s Chairs specialise in the restoration of antique and early 20th century chairs, footstools, couches and screens.

We love to bring heirloom and much loved pieces back to life, restoring the frame, reupholstering, and bringing up-to-date with your choice of fabric.   

Being skilled in both traditional and modern upholstery we will ensure the most appropriate techniques are used to refurbish your piece and extend its life for many years to come.


Made to Measure


We ​undertake bespoke commissions for new footstools, lampshades

and screens, made to measure to your exact requirements

to create a unique item, perfect for your home.


All services are run from our beautiful workshop within the Sylva Foundation Wood Centre in Long Wittenham

near Abingdon.  Our stunning countryside location on the Oxfordshire Berkshire border is close to Wallingford, Wantage and Henley, and easily accessible from Didcot, Oxford, and Reading.
