Each class meeting will include time for sharing experiences, goals and individual journeys to nurture personal creativity and inspire others.

Introduction to Upholstery Transform a stuffed chair with fresh fabric and piping into a snazzy new addition to your home. We’ll work through the steps of reupholstering by removing the old fabric, adding new foam (if necessary), sewing the piping and seat cushion and applying the new fabric.

ENRICHMENT Understanding Trauma Through lecture, discussion and group interaction, students will gain a greater understanding of what trauma is and how it affects people, including their behaviors, thought processes and feelings. The discussion will include viewing trauma in the short, intermediate and long terms. Much of the generally available information on trauma is misleading and simply inaccurate, so this course will provide a concrete definition of trauma and its different levels (i.e. the trauma continuum). The course will look at the interventions, therapies and support that are most likely to help persons impacted by trauma, and also the potential limitations and risks with those efforts. We’ll address issues such as symptom management versus healing, the role of diagnosis and advanced topics of cultural and intergenerational trauma.
