Upholstering/Wood Refinishing


Basic Upholstery
Turn a chair or couch into something that looks better than new. Bask in the glory, knowing that you did it yourself and that you have a skill to use forever. Classroom and shop experience is included. Select fabric, measure, cut, and sew a simple or complicated project. Learn about tufting and channeling. Learn to remove finishes and repair small defects. NOTE: Bring a simple chair to the 2nd class. For those students interested in this class but without a piece needing upholstering, pieces can be purchased in class. Tool list provided at 1st meeting.
