    UPHOLSTERY TOOL BASICS

    DESCRIPTION
    Learn the basics of upholstery techniques including the operation of our industrial sewing machine. You’ll walk away with the skills you’ll need to take future upholstery classes, as well as a new awareness of how to bring new life to old furniture.

    SKILLS
    Cutting, sewing, stuffing, assembling.

    TOOLS
    Scissors, staple pullers, sewing machine, tack hammer, pneumatic stapler.

    MATERIALS
    ADX provides scraps of material for practice; this class focuses on tools and does not include a project.

    INSTRUCTOR: Jonathan runs his upholstery business, Functional Art, out of ADX and loves sharing his knowledge and experience with ADX members and visitors. Jonathan has over 30 years experience and can upholster just about anything. He recently upholstered furniture for The Importance of Being Earnest at Artists Rep.  Sign up for Upholstery for Theatre Makers and then schedule private sessions with a master.

    A NOTE ABOUT CLASS SIZE

    Classes are limited to 4 students to ensure lots of hands-on time with the tools and personal attention from the instructor. If the class is sold out but you’re still interested in this particular class, we can add your name to a waitlist and will contact you if a ticket becomes available.

    Once you register for the class we will send you a confirmation email with a link to the ADX website where you can complete your registration
