Given the current rise of COVID-19 cases, social distancing requirements and our concern for everyone's health and safety, we are have made the decision to  postpone classes for the foreseeable future. Once our public health officials have given us all the 'All Clear'  we will re-evaluate and announce class dates. Hopefully we will safely be up and running again in 2021.

We appreciate your understanding in these challenging times.

About Our Classes

At Upholstery Couture, we believe the best way to learn a new skill is to be expertly taught in person by a seasoned professional passionate about their craft. Our classes are filled with students searching for memorable experiences, creative growth, fearless exploration and hours of precious 'me' time. Experience shop life first hand inside our authentic working upholstery studio, alongside other like-minded creatives, wishing to learn and share their talents and challenges.

  • overview of  frames, suspension, padding, fabrics and finishing

  • valuable design, estimate, layout and cutting skills

  • introduction to specialized industrial machines in a working studio

  • coveted finishing secrets used by pros to achieve a polished look
