Do the kids need something to keep them busy and engaged this summer? Try my Upholstery Camp for Kids*! Bring a friend FREE to work on one project together. Can this friend be an adult? Absolutely ;)...

Camp begins July 12th and runs on Wednesdays from 10am - 2pm. (July 12, 19, 26). In this class your child will bring a piece of furniture to re-imagine or restore. They will design their vision, and I'll walk them through how to complete their projects every step of the way. ALL fabric, materials and tools provided.

Each student will receive personalized instruction and hands-on support from me as they learn to evaluate, deconstruct, repair, and re-upholster their own small piece of furniture, along with some beginner tools of their own to take home.

*Ages 10+ Recommended, younger if accompanied by an adult.
