Upholstery Workshop!

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.
