Upholstery Class: Thursday 5:30-7:30pm May 11th - June 15th
This is an entry level upholstery class and assumes the student has no prior experience with upholstery. We’ll start from the very beginning, you will learn how to determine fabric yardage, choose appropriate fabric, tear it down (remove the old upholstery fabric), make simple repairs, re-pad and reupholster it. Professional tips and shortcuts will be covered. You will learn how to use upholsterer’s tools as well as how to substitute tools you may already have at home.
The goal of this course is to teach basic upholstery techniques that can be applied to your larger pieces at home. We recommend open armed side chairs for this course and selection of the right chair as your project will help you to succeed.
We provide the basic tools needed to complete your project. We do not provide the materials needed such as upholstery, padding, foam, etc. We will help you determine which materials you will need and guide you on the best and most cost effective means to purchase these materials.
These classes are paced for beginning level chairs and all chairs must be approved prior to class. Due to the entry level nature of this course we cannot accept fully upholstered arm chairs. A chair that seems easy to you can become difficult very quickly.
If you have a project chair you can send us a pic of your chair via email or text us a pic to 402 202 8694 prior to class. We do have a limited number of project pieces available. You can view these chairs in the "Upholstery Projects" section of the website.
Classes will meet for six sessions on the following days: May 11th, May 18th, May 25th, June 1st, June 8th and June 15th.
