PILOT MOUNTAIN — Surry Community College is offering upholstery classes in commercial and automotive at The Pilot Center, 612 E. Main St., Pilot Mountain, during the fall.
Classes start in August and end in December.
Students can bring their upholstery projects 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.
