Welcome to The Funky Little Chair . . .

VALUED STUDENTS: Our Minneapolis classes are momentarily on hold as we all work together to flatten the curve. We look forward to restoring events as soon as circumstances permit – it is always our honor to share upholstery with you. 

In the meantime, we encourage you to spend this time reading, practicing, and staying connected. 

It’s also an ideal time to explore our online tools. We’ve designed content that we believe is helpful on its own or in partnership with live training.  In short – we hope these resources will be effective as instruction for the moment, and as preparation for the future. 

Until we meet again <3

Ready to try some upholstery, or take your skills to the next level? Great!

All our classes are lead by professionals who are not only experienced upholsterers – they’re also great teachers. They’re ready to make you feel welcome and to help you learn more about this challenging-but-beautiful craft.

Since most of our “classes” are open studio, you can expect to meet a mix of people and see a mix of projects – feel free to peek around and learn from your neighbor! Which class you belong in depends mostly upon your goals:

.Weekend Warriors Workshop:

Interested in tackling a small project, covering some basics, or trying upholstery for fun? Start here! Weekend Warriors are a fun, quick weekend among friends, and they’re great for out-of-town students. . . .
