Upholstery Intensive

Summer Upholstery Intensive

Take a week off from your summer routine and spend it in our upholstery workshop—just like our regular Upholstery  class but offered in 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 one or more weeks if you have a large or complex piece.

Summer Craft Intensives

Immerse yourself in craftsmanship, creativity and community.
