Cathy Newbery (Upholstery)

May 29th at 13:47

  • upholstery specialist and Tutor from Cumbria
  • holds an Association of Master Upholsterers & Soft Furnishings Advanced qualification
  • trained adult teacher
  • has taught upholstery day classes Countywide in several locations over the years
  • has done work as a public art curator and also for the National Trust

Cathy first took up upholstery as a local evening class many years ago actually with our previous Tutor Simon Ireland (now retired). This developed into a specialism that now means she has been able to become his replacement here at Higham!

A weekend is just about enough time to carry out most work on the equivalent of a single chair re-upholstering. Students are asked to contact Cathy (07770 714103) first to discuss their project suitability and to ascertain what materials etc. need to be brought to the course. Cathy can supply materials at cost if required.

Some really nice images of her work can be found on Cathy’s Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/cathynewbery
