Reupholstering a chair is a great way to take a piece that you already own and love and give it a fresh new feeling. This project is fun, creative and can be done in a weekend.

In this class students will learn basic techniques to reupholster a dining room chair. We will also cover the mixing and matching of fabric and chair designs to maintain unity in the space. 

The instructor will demonstrate how to disassemble the chair, remove old fabric, add new batting, and how to cut and secure the new fabric. We will cover the tools needed to complete this project, estimating the amount of fabric needed and we will touch on some basic design principles used to choose the fabric.
