The possible diversity of projects and materials is broad and class time is short. Wheeler will be in contact with each student in the weeks prior to the class to plan supplies and materials needed for individual projects. With her advice, each student will be responsible for obtaining specific materials before the class begins. Class participants will receive a tool list of required and recommended tools, as well as recommendations for regional and online upholstery supply resources. Some very basic upholstery supplies will be on hand. Project pertinent materials and the expense of same will be the responsibility of each student. Out-of-town students can plan to find a fun upholstery project locally.
