Upholstery Classes Online
Recently we visited an upholstery shop Coverup Interiors just outside of Kansas City, in Grandview, Missouri. Ron Villalobos 3rd generation upholster (owner) with over 30-years of experience in residential and commercial projects has been conducting upholstery classes two days per week for the last 7-years. Many of his students are repeat students all the way back to the very first lesson. Over the years Ron has had to turn people away or offer to add them to his waiting list. Like many trades, upholstery is a dying art and skill. His students are not making a career change, but this is a place for them to feel confident with using tools and gives them a sense of pride when they look at their finished piece. Many of the students have reupholstered several pieces in their home as well as doing pieces for friends and family. Because of the high demand, Ron will launch online classes mid-2018. We will keep you posted. Check out the video Ron shared with us.
Maybe you will be inspired or decide to pursue a career in upholstery.
