Are you interested in learning professional upholstery techniques? Artisan Upholstery Workshops give you the opportunity to complete a project with professional guidance and tools. You’ll be proud to say you did it yourself!

These are hands-on, day-long workshops. Beginners are able to bring and upholster a small side chair. More experienced students will bring a slightly more complicated small project to work on. You will have use of a pneumatic stapler, proper upholstery hand tools and safety equipment.

Although these workshop days are fun, they are also hard work! Please note that you will have to strip the fabric off your chair beforehand.

Basic materials are INCLUDED, with the exception of fabric and foam. If required, foam is available at an additional cost. You supply your own fabric.


Beginner Project – $225 – one day, tax included

Advanced Project – $250 – one day, tax included

Large Project – $475 – two days, tax included

Thank you so much for your interest! The wait list is now closed for 2023. If you are on the wait list, you will be contacted when new dates are added to see if you are still interested.

When a date becomes available, a non-refundable deposit of $50 is required to secure your spot. Dates are not transferable.

Projects must be approved before the deposit is sent. Only chairs or small projects are acceptable due to space restrictions. Certain styles of furniture are too complicated for these multiple-person workshops and cannot be considered. Please use these photos as a guide for appropriate projects.
