I started Wisteria Workshop six years ago selling original pieces of reupholstered furniture and cushions at markets and independent shops. Customers began asking if I would take on commissions and then classes in upholstery. I agreed and still take commissions as this is the core of the business. I continue to take classes in my workshop beside the Wisteria.
I am very passionate about saving our precious resources from waste and land fill. However, I am now cutting down on the amount of furniture I reupholster to sell and concentrating on commissions and classes.
In 2020 a new side of my business has developed in partnership with another recycling independent. We are reusing fabric and adult clothes and creating original quality childrens clothes...Kinder Garments. More details to follow.
