We'll be teaching a reupholstering class through Merrymeeting Adult Education starting on Feb. 23, 2010. This is a hands-on class to teach beginners the fundamentals of reupholstering furniture. We will work with each student's footstool, ottoman or drop in seat to show the many techniques which can be carried through to larger pieces of furniture.
Upon completion of the course, the student will have a better understanding as to how upholstered furniture is put together. They will learn about repairing the frame, replacing old webbing, tightening or gluing joints and spring tying.
In addition to reupholstering their furniture, we will also discuss the things you should consider when buying new furniture.
Should be a great class and its open to everyone in the Midcoast Maine area.
