For those who like working with their hands and want to learn a new skill that can be used as a career or hobby, Surry Community College will be offering an upholstery class in August.
The classes will be held in Room 140 of the Pilot Center, 612 East Main St., Pilot Mountain, Aug. 19 through Dec. 11 on each Monday and Wednesday; the first one from 12:30 to 4:30 p.m., and the second from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m.
Participants are encouraged to bring their upholstery project and learn to tear down a piece of upholstered furniture or automotive seat; then, completely restore it by repairing or rebuilding the frames, replacing parts, and selecting and replacing fabric. This is an entirely hands-on class that requires lifting and the use of sewing machines and cutting tools.
Pre-registration and pre-payment of $183 and a $25 supply fee are required. Call (336) 386-3618 for more information. To register online or to print off the registration form, visit www.surry.edu/personal-enrichment, and to stay informed of classes like this, follow @personalenrichment on Facebook.
