Upcycling Furniture Weekend

About Upcycling Furniture Weekend

Spend a week end in my gorgeous Victorian kitchen studio learning upcycling techniques and remaking your old piece of furniture!

About this Event
During this two day workshop based in the West end of Glasgow I will teach you anything you need to know about paint and how to use it to remake a loved piece of furniture in need of a make over. You will learn how to prep your piece, paint it and apply the finish you always wanted to learn... We will practice stencilling, decoupage, gilding, we will make chalk paint and learn to use it.

With me I am afraid no quick one coat does it all technique, I teach you how to understand paint so you can make a lot with what you have left over... You will learn some new skills and complete your small piece (small table, chair or box) Don't aim to huge or you will spend all your time in the preparation and will miss out in the decorative techniques.

I will welcome you both days with fresh tea/coffee and a roaring fire and we will spend the first part of the workshop discovering all about paint and material before you all embark on your own project. Working side by side you learn from one another and we share name and tell times where we take each other's work to learn to trouble shout... I have been teaching up-cycling for 30 years and I love how this technique is so versatile.

You will not only be so happy to remake your piece but also learn to recycle and reduce landfill which is a great way to live today...

Only 6 participants in this workshop so you get a lot of my personal attention and leave with a nicely finished piece and loads of new techniques you have learned.

I will supply sandwich and fruit lunch both days, all equipment and some basic paint, for something more specialised you may have to shop on Saturday night for your Sunday session.
