Estimated price for personal materials should be less than $150.
You will learn the basic anatomy of an upholstered chair. The class will start with a slide presentation followed a demonstration of how to make a slip cover using materials such as: webbing, burlap, foam, muslin and upholstery fabric. More advanced skills such as tying springs, double piping, finishing tacks will be demonstrated in the afternoon. By the end of day you will complete a slip cover demonstrating the skills learned in class.
In the morning, we'll review information covered in Day 1. You will bring your own piece to reupholster (see attached diagram for permitted pieces), with the goal of your piece needing at least 3 of the techniques taught on the previous day. We will work for the remainder of the day reupholstering your chair or ottoman. Open Studio time is extended one week after the Weekend Intensive for you to work independently to finish your projects.
We suggest purchasing supplies from Zarin's or Joe's Fabrics in NYC.
