There is a $45 annual registration fee that will be added to your the total amount of the class if this is the first class you are registering for this season.
With spot repair skills, students are able to learn the basics of repairing nicks, dents and scratches in wood and wood coatings. This class also includes larger repairs such as crushed corners, missing pieces of veneer, damage done by the family pet, water rings, chemical spills, heat damage and a host of other types of damage. Color matching is an important component to the procedure so time will be spent understanding color theory. In-painting/graining will also be covered in order to create a small faux finish on the repairs. This is a beginning course and repairs will be performed on some wood panels that have been finished with lacquer. Students should purchase or bring a spot repair kit (around $340).
