Have you always wanted to learn upholstery with me but don't live close enough to attend in-person? My Virtual Upholstery Workshops are a perfect way to navigate the furniture upholstery process at your own pace, with my guidance.

Join me at online via ZOOM at Maker Works, Mondays  6pm - 9pm EST, as I guide you through the basic fundamentals of furniture upholstery and restoration. Each 3 hour virtual upholstery workshop allows you to work on your own project from home for personalized instruction and my hands-on support, as you learn to deconstruct, repair, and re-upholster your own small piece of furniture. 

Classes limited to 6 students!
