Hi, I'm Inma Goodhew, founder of The Old School Club. I help people learn creative skills, make unique creations and turn their creativity into a profitable business. When I started I had no idea how to run a business, but I learned how to be productive whilst looking after two small children, how to do my own marketing, websites, social media and bookkeeping and how to build a successful business from zero. My creative skills are mostly self taught, refined by practicing and making my own mistakes. 
This is why I have created this blog for Home Makers and Upcyclers. Whether you do it as a hobby or you would like to run your own business, I will provide tutorials, inspiration, business guides and online courses so you can get to do what you love.

My boyfriend and I attended Inmas upholstery course in January 16. We made a footstool which took 3 sessions which were 3 housr long. Inma is a wonderful teacher, she is so friendly and extremely passionate about the course and ensures that everyone makes a perfect footstool. She even stayed late one evening so that we could master the art of upholstery! We can't recommend this course enough and will definitely be back for more!

Dear Inma, Thank you for a fantastic day of furniture painting. I feel I learned a lot of new skills and now feel brave enough to tackle a project!. Can't wait to take another course.

I attended Inma's modern upholstery course on Friday 9th October 2015. It was a great day and Inma was very patient and explained what to do very well. I returned home with with a reupholstered box seat which I am very proud of.

Thanks for a brilliant taster session on using Autentico paint. It was great to be able to have a go & see what can be achieved. I've already started painting at home!
