French interior and upholstery by Sophie Bailly

DIY WORKSHOP : 6 session upholstery class starts on tuesday 9/25

You have an old chair in your basement you’re about to get rid of…. DON’T ! Join us to learn how to reupholster your seat and give it  a new life !


You bring your own project and we discuss together what to do. Does your chair need a total make-over or just recovering? You can also train on a common project if you don’t have your own chair. From stripping to finishing,  you will discover the step-by-step process of chair renovation.
