Quintessentially English - historic buildings, links with Capability Brown and glorious countryside. Slightly exotic - flamboyant, and loud, peacocks wander the streets. And occasionally a film set - Ross Poldark brooded his way around here... The Wiltshire market town of Corsham is something of a hidden treasure.

Upholstery Courses Craft or hobby workshops can be great fun and will teach you a new skill. However, few crafts are as useful as the art of upholstery. We all sit on chairs and sofas in our homes that from time to time need repairing or re-upholstering; with this skill you will never run out of furniture projects. A very useful and popular fi rst project is to make a new stool; many a proud student has left our workshops with a new footstool or large upholstered magazine table. You can choose from two-day leisure courses or qualifi cation courses.
