Student Reviews

"Mary’s Chairs is very special. I love the upholstery - Mary is a sympathetic yet uncompromising teacher and everyone is always proud of their results. But the workshop is so much more than upholstery. It is warm and friendly and a lovely place to be. I really look forward to my weekly sessions." Caroline Hitch

“I have been coming to Mary’s Chairs for a few years now and have done several projects. It is the best thing ever! The classes are small so you receive plenty of support and professional guidance. Each student will do their own project so you go at your own pace. The atmosphere is warm, kind and relaxed and you cannot help but feel hugely proud of your achievement when your project is finished! Thank you Mary’s Chairs, I am hooked!!" Hester Robinson

"I have been going to Mary’s Chairs since my retirement in 2017. I had very little confidence in my creative abilities so entered the workshop for the first time with some trepidation. I need not have worried! I was made so welcome by Mary, Christine, Pip and my other classmates and soon felt part of the team. Mary is a talented, patient and encouraging teacher who helps her students to achieve results far above their expectations. Since those early days I have completed a range of projects, learning new skills all the time. However, it is not all about the chairs! The workshop provides a comfortable and attractive workspace where new friendships are formed, coffee and chocolate biscuits enjoyed, and experiences shared." Heather Haigh
