Workshops

Workshops are here!

New in 2022, I have started offering workshops both in my studio and hosted workshops. Our classes will be kept to 4 students for individual attention. Some of the workshop topics are; Tuffets, Poufs & Pillows, Dining Seats, Cushions & Sewing Skills, Simple Chair, Tufted Ottoman, Wingback Chair and All About Leather. If you want to be informed of new workshop offers, subscribe to my email list.

I started teaching workshops to share my love of upholstery. If you and 3 of your friends want to book a workshop together, I’m happy to accommodate you. We can pick a date that works for your group. Contact me for more information.

Past Workshops


All About Leather

The first leather workshop was in April 2022, and we are so proud of the participants. Some of the leather skills they learned:
•How to measure & cut a hide for projects.
•How to vent leather.
•How to do topstitching.
•How to make leather buttons.
•How to make leather welt.
•How to make a leather pouf.
•How to make a leather zipper panel.
•How to make a leather cushion.

A big Thank you to https://www.crestleather.com/ for all their support. Having such beautiful hides allowed our class to dive in without fear. Never stop learning!

Tuffets

In February we had our first workshop and it was all about Tuffets! It’s incredible how many sewing and upholstery skills you can learn by making a tuffet.

• How to measure and cut foam and fabric for a perfect fit.
• How to make welt and buttons.
• How to sew welt and boxing on a round pattern.
• How to build a foundation with a wood base, foam and dacron.
• How to plan, drill and attach 4 feet.
• How to attach your finished cover to get a perfect fit

All great skills you can use for many future upholstery pieces.
