"The day course was three hours long and it was a pleasant time during the lesson. Peter put my mind at rest and patiently talked me through every step of the way. His friendly manner and patience with a novice like me put me at ease. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and came away knowing I had done my best and made a good headway with my piece of furniture.

"I am currently reupholstering a small buttoned back chair. Peter is teaching me the traditional methods rather than the “modern” that I discovered on stripping it. He is a good tutor, very patient and certainly a gifted upholsterer. Would thoroughly recommend the course."

"From the first time meeting Peter for my ‘Chair Assessment’, throughout the restoration and to the final session when the restoration was complete I felt that Peter understood what I wanted to achieve. I went along with a ‘tired’ oak corner chair that needed the seat re-rushing and, following Peter’s advice, left inspired to restore the full chair and not just the seat. Several sessions later I left with a lovely restored oak corner chair with a re-rushed seat, all of which I completed under Peter’s guidance and without removing the patina and history of the chair, which held many memories from my childhood. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and am now looking round for my next project. So, if you have any antique furniture that you would like to have a go at restoring, I can 100% recommend Peter @ The Upholstery Tutor / Peter White Furniture. "

"Last week, I completed a course of four sessions with Peter. During that time I refurbished what Peter told me was a gout stool. Although it was a comparitively small project, Peter introduced me, a complete novice, to the different tools, materials and techniques required. It was a fun learning experience. Peter demonstrated great patience in making sure I was doing things correctly and it was a pleasure to have him as a teacher. Once I find my next 'interesting project' I shall be back for further guidance."

"I contacted Peter at the start of this year to see whether he could repair a Rattan cane chair. He suggested I could repair it with his tuition at much less cost. I took him up on the offer and attended several workshops at his premises. Peter exhibits a great depth of knowledge, appreciation and practical skill in furniture restoration. As a tutor he showed patience and explained the process clearly to me. I’m likely to return later this year to tackle a different type of restoration project under his direction."
