Tutor – Nicola Hamilton
My first experience with upholstery began in an evening class over 20 years ago, I loved it and was hooked.
I gave up my job as a Physio and embarked on a full-time, 2 year, City and Guilds course in Upholstery which I passed with distinction.
Once the course was over I set up a business with a fellow student forming Hamilton & Hodson.
I now split my time between H&H, teaching upholstery and spending time with my young daughter.
I have been teaching since 2008 and really enjoy seeing others become enthused about upholstery, as I did all those years ago, in an evening class just like the ones I now teach!

Coming from a family of glove makers in Wales, I’ve always been keen on sewing. I find the benefits of sewing to be vast! Sewing can be calming as well as teaching us patience. I was drawn into teaching because I’m passionate about adult learning. So I’ve been lucky enough to combine a personal interest […]
