Reupholster a Chair!
with Dick Albert
Haven’t you always wondered how this was done?? In this class you will learn to properly tear down a chair, align fabric, cut out patterns to match, stitch on a commercial machine, make repairs to the frame, tie springs, add padding and apply the new material in the proper sequence.
Students will need to bring an upholstery tack puller, scissors for cutting fabric, wing back chair to work on, 5-7.5 yards of upholstery fabric (do not need for first class) electric stapler (if you have one and don’t forget the extension cord), plyers, rubber mallet. Learn some of the ‘tricks of the trade’ from an expert!
*Lab fee of $22 payable directly to instructor on first day of class*
