We know online upholstery classes are a new concept for many of you!
Before you contact us with a question see if it is answered here with some of the more frequently asked questions. If you think there is a question we should include on this FAQ board please let us know and we will be happy to take it under consideration.
What tools and materials do i need?
There is an extensive array tools used in upholstering, some of which are listed below:
- Tack Hammer
- Webbing Stretcher
- Button Needle
- Wood Mallet (better than rubber)
- Staple and Tack Removers
A lot of these tools are unique to upholstering. Lots of different fabrics and materials are used as well. This is where it’s helpful to have a teacher as experienced as Kevin. He discusses alternate tools you can use too, for example pliers that work well instead of webbing stretchers.
How long are the courses?
The course consists of Six (sometimes more) 1-2 hour online classes. Once purchased you will have access to the class forever! You can always ask Kevin questions through the contact page, or email for any class in our library. For those who have more questions, Kevin will be providing Q&A sessions on Youtube once a week.
Who are the classes designed for?
Our classes are designed for anyone intersted in the art of upholstery. Whether your working on a DIY project, learning how to teach others or are a seasoned vet in the feild, our classes provide something for everyone!
Is it too late to sign up mid-semester?
Absolutly not! Once a semester is purchased, you will have access to all previous classes you may have missed.
Do i have to sign up for the latest, most current class?
Not if it doesnt interest you! If one of our previous classes fills your needs better than our current class than by all means select one of those! The beauty of Broadway Upholsery School is that were always adding new classes that feature new projects. So you have a wide array of projects to choose from. If Michelle’s East Lake chair fills your needs more than Jimmys Ottoman, we wont be mad at you…although Jimmy might be somewhat dissapointed…
Whats going to happen to the Youtube channel?
The Youtube channel isn’t going anywhere, in fact the Upholstery on Broadway team will still be making short posts on youtube. These classes offer a more structured learning environment where the upholstery team can cover specific topics and fill in the more intricate details to raise your skill level and become a true pro.
How are the courses presented?
Our courses are presented in video form. Each week you will be given access to an hour+ long video that shows the latest steps in our project that we are working on. No confusing online classroom setups.
