Learn to reupholster in a day!
We will be meeting in the classroom at exactly 7AM so we can trip into town to the thrift stores and find our couches to reupholster.
We will be following several of the wonderful tutorials provided on Craftster, and trying new methods I have invented until you find a way that works for you!
Some of the methods we will be experimenting with:
Adding Dacron to foam
Heat Gun Area Heating
Shock Cord Springs
we will be recreating our couches into the following types:
loveseats, settee, sectional, divan, fainting couch, chaise longue, canape, retractable ottomans, daybeds, futons, King Leon's Bottom Rough, Buttered Upper, chesterfield, and the traditional sofa
After the couches are completed we will be bringing them to set around the campfire for the big Saturday night compound song and scary story party! Couches will be available for sale after the campfire!Cost
