Hello! My name is Susie and I’m the founder of Studio Stanway, a small upholstery workshop in Wendover, Buckinghamshire.
In July 2019 I finished the three-stage Association of Master of Upholsterers diploma, graduating with a Distinction and am continuing my professional development with a further 1 year advanced traditional diploma course at the British School of Upholstered Furniture.
BSUF is a highly respected training centre which offers the only advanced diploma in traditional methods to be accredited by the Guild of Traditional Upholsterers. Over the course of 2020 I'll be designing a chair from the frame up and upholstering it to the highest standards as set by the School and the Guild.
Whilst based in Buckinghamshire I'm available to work on commissions and collaborations across London, Herts and Oxfordshire.
