Instructor: Kathleen Koenig kathleenkoenig4@gmail.com, Ann Laveroni arlaveroni@aol.com, Isabelle Trainer isatrainer@gmail.com, Shelly Kim, shellybkim@gmail.com
Quarter: Winter 2020
Prerequisite: None

Learn how to reupholster your chair or ottoman from start to finish using a mix of traditional and modern techniques. You will be guided through the entire process of reupholstering your project. While having some sewing/crafting experience can be helpful, it is not a requirement to enroll, however a simple project is recommended for beginners*. So if you have an old piece of furniture you would like to salvage, come check us out!

This class operates like a workshop where you will have space to work on a unique piece of furniture. You will be guided through the entire process of reupholstering your project. You will learn how to remove worn materials, rebuild the interior structure by replacing foam or re-tying springs as needed, and reupholster it with new fabric and trimmings.
