Hi, I am Ursula James and I love doing upholstery! I’ve always had a passion for textiles….I started making clothes and doing knitting which lead me to studying art and fashion, and then textiles. With a varied career (product manager, teacher, varnishing wooden boats and boat chef!!) some of which – didn’t always inspire me but gave me some great experience and skills. However, during this time, my passion for textiles always continued as a hobby.
Finally after becoming a mother in the last 2 and half years, I have managed to find the time, (in between the busy demands of motherhood) to start upholstering. I have been attending upholstery and furniture reparation+french polishing classes to help guide me through different projects. I’m aiming to build my confidence and increase my skills base so that I can tackle most upholstery or soft furnishing projects with a view to do this professionally.
My weekly blog will provide a record showing my method of work, my repertoire of skills I have as I gain them and show the projects I’ve completed, which will reflect a high quality or work/finish that I strive to achieve. And hopefully this maybe of interest to some of you out there too!
And if you want to make to a comment or contact me – please do!
