About Alex Law

Alex Law has been working as an upholsterer since the late 1980s. He has followed the traditional path from apprentice, through journeyman and on to Master Upholsterer. In 2013 Alex left teaching in London and set up the Kent School of Upholstery bringing upholstery classes back to the town where he first learnt the craft: Faversham, UK.

About Posy Gentles

Since then, her passion has been such that she has even snapped up armchairs and sofas left on the street for rubbish collection.
