Ready to try some upholstery? Weekend Warriors is the perfect place to start! A quick 12 hour open workshop with all the tools, supplies and support you’ll need to tackle a simple project with confidence.
We offer, on average, two Weekend Warriors Workshops per month September-May, and spots fill fast (each weekend is limited to 4 participants)
If you have a group, we can also create a weekend just for you – find out more
LENGTH: 12 hours (Saturday & Sunday 10am-4pm)
COST: $225 (Includes tools and basic supplies. Does not include foam or fabric)
Instructors: Lindsay Orwig OR Amy Otteson
RECOMMENDED PROJECTS: These weekends are considered, “open workshop” but it’s strongly recommended that you choose a simple project – 12 hours goes fast! New students are encouraged to check out our Pinterest board, “GOOD FIRST UPHOLSTERY PROJECTS” or contact us directly to discuss options. Returning students are welcome to work on more complex pieces, though we may recommend prep/homework and you’ll likely need more than one weekend. When in doubt: PLEASE ASK. We’re happy to help!
Not permitted: oversized pieces, projects with major foundation issues, spring work, channeling, attached cushions or significant style changes. If you are interested in tackling more complex skills, please try a small project first and then check out our intermediate/advanced workshops.
Once you’ve registered and paid using the links below, you will receive a follow-up email from your instructor with additional information. We’re looking forward to seeing you in the shop!
