Classes for refinishing Heywood Wakefied furniture

For all of those who may be Heywood Wakefield fans or collectors, I'm feeling the waters to see if anyone is interested in taking a 3 week, one day a week course on how to refinsh your piece(s).
I'm considering a course of about an hour and a half sometime on Sunday morning for 3 consecutive weeks starting in late March, early April. in the Seminle Heights neighborhood of Tampa. I would like to start with about 4-5 people per class so if you're interested please let me know ASAP.
This would be a very comprehensve course covering a breif history of the company, item identification, what to look for when buying a piece, valuation, proper disasembly procedure, tools you'll need and the best way to get your piece back to original condition. It will extensively cover sanding and finish procedures and reassembly. I would like to have people that sign up to have a piece that they want to refinish as this will be a hands on class and we would work on the pieces collectively.
The price would be $210 for all 3 weeks including supplies.
If you're interested please contact me at or or through this blog and I can give you more details if you have an interest.
All you need is a great attitude, a lot of patience, and maybe some investment in some needed tools...
