Weekend Upholstery Workshop at the Shane Center
I’m loving the diversity in my latest upholstery class, which included Jill’s mid-century CHROM-Craft chair and John’s home-made chair built from a single piece of plywood.

The craft of (RE)upholstery is, without a doubt, a key solution to the problem of furniture waste (12 million tons of furniture go to landfills each year in the U.S. alone). Please consider supporting the National Upholstery Association in their efforts to expand professional upholstery education. We need more 'boots on the ground' to do this work. Thank you.
