OCC Beginning Upholstery Class
Have a family heirloom you want to restore or a boat or three-wheeler seat that needs refurbished? Olney Central College is offering a beginning upholstery class that can get you started.
Instructor Mike Rennier said the project-oriented course is ideal for anyone who has a small item they want to recover.
“We’ll start with the very basics,” said Rennier, who has more than 30 years’ experience in the field. “Students will learn how to tear apart, lay out and put an item back together.”
Rennier said students will be able to work at their own pace, and he will offer advice and assistance as they complete their projects.
The class, HEC 1198 Topics/Issues in Home Economics (Beginning Upholstery), will meet from 6 to 8:50 p.m. on Thursdays, beginning, Aug. 21. Seating is limited and individuals are encouraged to enroll as soon as possible.
