We’re delighted to announce that our special guest and keynote speaker at the Dorset Apprenticeship Awards presentation ceremony will be creative entrepreneur and craftswoman Sonnaz Nooranvary, resident upholstery expert on TV show The Repair Shop and former Sunseeker International Ltd apprentice.

Sonnaz Nooranvary is a UK-based creative entrepreneur and craftswoman, best known for being the resident upholstery expert on The Repair Shop.

Sonnaz developed her eye for detail and precision craftsmanship when she started her upholstery career with an apprenticeship at Sunseeker at 17 years old. By the age of 25, driven by her entrepreneurial spirit, Sonnaz started her own business providing a full range of interiors services to individuals and organisations.

Passionate about supporting and inspiring future generations of creatives, Sonnaz is increasingly outspoken on sustainability within the interiors industry. With her new home interiors brand ‘House of Sonnaz’ launching in 2024, her goal is to set a new standard of sustainable, ethical manufacturing in the UK.


Last year’s winners included Intermediate Apprentice of the Year Nicky Sayers of Avon Magnetics, Advanced Apprentice of the Year Katie Smith of BBD Boom, and Higher and Degree Apprentice of the Year Florence Hudson of JPP.
