In this 10 week class you will learn skills used in basic upholstery projects. Instructor will demonstrate proper use of basic upholstery tools and techniques used in basic upholstery work.
The first 4 weeks will be a lecture based demonstration of how to prepare, breakdown, correctly measure fabric and reupholster a actual chair. This will give students the chance to see the whole process at once before they individually reupholster their own furniture.
During the following 6 weeks students will start and complete their own project. Each student is responsible to bring their piece of furniture to be reupholstered. Only ottomans, kitchen chairs, dining room chairs or piano benches may be reupholstered in this basic class. Specific pieces will be accepted at the teachers discretion. (Rule of thumb…If you can’t lift it yourself it is too big for this class.)
Just bring a note pad and pencil to the first class and please wait until week 5 to bring your furniture! (Unless otherwise specified by instructor)All tools needed will be provided.To guarantee your place in this class we must receive a $50 deposit by January 9th which will be applied to the cost of the class.
