Emily Upholster Me – Upholstery Classes


Homespun, Aratula

Since becoming a Furniture Fashionista, the most frequent questions I am asked is “where did you learn how to do this and can you please show me how to re-upholster and up-cycle my own furniture”. So I decided to teach a class at the workshop at Homespun, where my furniture is on sale, for anyone interested in learning the basics of upholstery.


Date: Saturday, 28th of April 2012
Time: 10:00am to 12:00pm
Cost: $35.00 includes a $50 Furniture Fashionista voucher and a slice of arguably the best cheesecake you’ve ever had.
Location: Homespun, Cunningham Highway, Aratula

What will you learn:
This is not a standard upholstery class, it is a look into how I pick my fabrics and how to take something ordinary and turn it into a design statement no matter if your style is modern, retro, traditional or shabby-chic.

I will walk you through:

  • What tools you need and where to get them
  • What fabrics to choose the to suit YOUR style
  • The techniques you need to know to get a professional finish.

You will get hands-on experience reupholstering chairs that I will supply for you to practice your newly learnt skills on so you can go home confident that you can tackle your own project.

Places are limited, for further information and to book, please contact Justine at Homespun on 0423 479 649 or email jj.cadena@bigpond.com
