The Chicago Upholstery Academy is a division of the Chicago Upholstery & Drapery Company, a leading upholstery and drapery workroom in Chicago. Your classes are taught by an industry professional with over 20 years of hands on experience.

What sets the Chicago Upholstery Academy apart from others is perhaps our approach to your learning. We believe your instructional education begins with a brief history of the trade, a review of the tools and materials followed by practical demonstrations and hands on practice.

We believe our classes are designed to educate individuals who may have an interest in pursuing the upholstery or sewing trades, as well as those who want to explore a new craft.
