Special considerations:

  • Rocking Chairs are generally not suitable for a class setting. Send us a photo of your chair if you wanted to learn on a rocker, we may be able to accommodate if it is small.
  • If your chair has wooden edging to remove from the sides of the seat, this must be done before class. We can remove and re-attach the skirts for a fee but this should be done AT LEAST ONE DAY BEFORE CLASS and will require 1-2 days after the class to reattach and match color.  This could be done by any furniture restoration professional in your hometown.

IMPORTANT: Please read through our Workshop FAQs.
