Meet our Trainer

Our Technical and Training Manager at Furniture Clinic is Craig Stevenson. Craig is a fully qualified traditional upholsterer by trade. Craig has 21 year’s experience in the upholstery trade and over 18 year’s experience repairing and restoring leather, of which the last 10 years have been at Furniture Clinic.

With the decline of the reupholstery trade in general, Craig turned his eye to leather repair. Gaining experience working for numerous companies, he soon realised which leather repair products worked well and how to achieve the best results

After many year’s hands-on experience, Craig joined Furniture Clinic as an upholsterer, reupholstering client’s furniture. We soon realised that his knowledge and ‘on the job’ experience of leather repair and leather repair products was such that, together, we were able to improve our product range and techniques to produce what are today considered to be the best in the industry.

Our training courses focus on a no-nonsense real-life experience approach to leather repair. We have had attendees who have been to other company’s leather training courses who have told us that they have learned more in one day with Furniture Clinic than they did over the entire training course of some of our competitors. Craig runs all of our internal, national and international training courses; a job which has taken him far afield to places such as Singapore, Australia, India, New York and even Saudi Arabia.
