Louise teaches on the Association of Master Upholsterers and Soft Furnishers (AMUSF) Modern and Traditional Upholstery courses.
Louise Richardson specialises in upholstery and furniture restoration. With a BA Hons Fine Art degree and a traditional training in upholstery, Louise's design knowledge combined with an eye for detail and hand skills come together to create beautiful work. These skills have enabled her to work with a broad range of furniture, from antique restoration to modern prototypes for designers, from twentieth-century design classics to soft furnishings and artist's sculptures.
Having worked in the furniture industry since 2007, Louise has acquired specialist skills and an attention to detail that can only be acquired through time and experience. Louise believes it is essential to pass on the knowledge and skills of these traditional trades and has been teaching since 2014.
Louise has a workshop in Brighton, where she is based and teaches the AMUSF qualification.
