NOTE: Our SUMMER PROGRAM for CHILDREN is canceled, along with all SPRING In-House classes.
CANCELLED Upholstery Intensive 1M20
Take a week off from your summer routine and spend it in our upholstery workshop—just like our regular Upholstery class but for an intensive five days. This class follows an open workshop format, incorporating students of all levels. Work at your own pace, on your own piece of furniture, with the teacher as your guide. Leave your work out in the shop and start each morning without having to set up. If you want to complete something in one week, a small chair or ottoman is your best choice. Leave yourself time for fabric shopping after Day 1. Take more than one week if you have a large or complex piece. Limit 8 students
Seymour Beckford started his apprenticeship at age 15 in Jamaica, doing both automobile and household upholstery. He continued as a professional upholsterer in a manufacturing plant there before founding his own company, MasterCraft Upholstery. Relocating to Boston, he worked at Majestic Upholstery in Kenmore Square and taught woodworking to children with physical and mental disabilities at Little People’s School (Newton). For over 22 years, he has maintained Seymour's Upholstering, a small storefront business in Mattapan.
