Why Choose the Upholstery Program?

Does the idea of making something amazing using a roll of material and your creativity excite you? The upholstery program provides a hands-on learning environment where students learn how to upholster through demonstrations they can apply to their own projects.

Students gain a foundation in measuring, cutting and sewing using industrial sewing machine equipment and can pursue training in automotive or furniture upholstery.
