Nicole Crowder's upholstery workshope is here to give upholstery and home decor enthusiasts basic skills and tips on how to approach those small projects like chairs, benches, ottomans like a pro. The hope is to empower you with confidence to tackle even larger projects like headboards, full-reupholstered chairs, and more at home.
Each one day 3-hour session is designed to maximize your hands-on time learning and executing basic skills for starting and completing one upholstery project. Workshops are designed to be able to provide more personal attention in a fun, stress-free atmosphere, and will include a 15-minute break.
What you'll learn in each class:
-How to properly and safely tear down and reassemble chairs using certain tools.
-Fabric and yardage, and determining how much to use on various projects.
-Materials needed for padding and reupholstering.
-Short cuts to help achieve the job with maximum results
Class Date and Time:
Sunday, September 17th, 2017: 1-4pm
What to bring:
-Your small chair or bench. What if I don’t have a chair? No, problem! We will happily provide you with a demo chair at an additional sourcing fee of $10, due at the beginning of the class. Please notify Nicole at least one week prior to your class to allow time to source a chair. Also, the Goodwill is an excellent place to find low-cost demo chairs. (I've scored several for just $5!)
-I will have spare fabric remnants on hand at varying small yardage. If you have a preference for the kind of fabric you would like to use, please feel free to bring with you!
- No need to worry about tools and supplies! All tools, foam and/or cotton needed to re-pad your item will be provided to the class.
