​About us

Cornhill Courses is run by Steve and Elsie Hutcheon from Walkers Upholstery. A family run business, Walkers Upholstery has been established for over 50 years based in Cupar, Fife. We use this wealth of knowledge on the courses we run at our training base nr Collessie in the heart of the Fife countryside.

We are situated in the lovely 'Howe of Fife'. This is a beautiful part of North East Fife with endless walking and cycling within the area where our workshop is situated. We are a stones throw from a lovely nature reserve at "Birnie loch", even close enough for a stroll round at lunch time! Just 10 mintues away is the ''Lomond hills'', twin peaks with fantastic views over the whole of Fife, industrial archeology and an Iron Age hill fort. Lovely villages are close at hand, the ancient burgh of Falkland is 3 miles away, with its lovely square, historic palace, pubs and restaurants. If you are a golfer we need hardly tell you about this area of Scotland! The workshop is 20 mins from St.andrews. There are more golf courses around here than anyone could shake a stick at!

As members of the Association of Master Upholsterer we were Scotland’s First Accredited upholstery training centre. Elsie is the main tutor at Cornhill and has been working within the family upholstery business since she was 16 years old. She has been teaching upholstery now for 31 years!! She is assisted by Jacki and Jenny. We also run weekend upholstery courses throughout the year.
