intro to upholstery: tufted ottoman

two 4-hour classes // $300 + supply fee (payable to instructor)

sorry, there are no intro to upholstery: tufted ottoman classes scheduled at this time. if you’re interested in this class, please email info@makeworkshop.com.

by popular demand: a hands-on workshop that teaches beginner upholstery techniques taking you from basic materials (foam, batting, welting, fabric, etc.) to a finished one-of-a-kind piece of furniture worthy of your favorite home decor magazine or blog.

in this two-session weekend workshop you’ll be taught how to use a variety of tools including an industrial stapler along with the best methods for successfully structuring, pleating, and tufting an ottoman–skills that can be applied to any number of DIY projects that you may want to undertake in the future.

supply fee: the $125 supply fee covers the cost of a wooden custom frame built by your instructor, legs, foam, adhesive, batting, etc. (the yard of fabric required and the stain or paint for the legs are not included; these are design decisions for you to make!)

note: class participants will also have the option of buying additional ottoman kits (wooden base and legs) at a nominal fee.
