Get UP for Upholstery
In 2010, a journalist with the Independent newspaper penned an article discussing whether upcycling was just an eco-trend that would fizzle out or whether it was here to stay for good.
The article is pro-upcycling (even if It does deem it a buzzword) but fears the impact mass producers may have on the originality of upcycling.
Needless to say, in the following eight years; upcycling continues to be at the forefront of original design and that is unlikely to change any time soon with the only barrier the creator’s imagination.
Upcycling continues to be a major force in changing peoples attitude to just buying ‘new’ instead of seeking the potential already within their possession.
However, upcycling does not have to be defined by one just thing, and at Upcycled Creative, one of the many areas we are passionate about is our unique Upholstery workshops.
Our upholstery workshops (located in Derbyshire) were set up to enable us to pass on our passion and to help guide anyone wanting to learn new skills such as: -
· Re-covering chairs + Stools
In fact, anything you can think of to upcycle your chosen item into a beautifully upholstered piece you will be proud to have in your home.
However, it would be easy for us to tell you how wonderful and intuitive our workshops are, but we thought it better to let some of our visitors to our Derbyshire workshop tell you of their experiences.

So how about it? why not give our Modern Upholstery Workshop a go and create a piece that is unique to you all under the professional guidance of Lee.
As we collaborate with the ministry of upholstery, you will be in the best hands and will join a group of people eager to either discover upcycling for the first time or gain new skills in a fun environment.
