Upcycling Furniture Workshop

About Upcycling Furniture Workshop

A perfect workshop learning the tricks of the trade... over 8 Wednesday nights! A total of 24 hours.

Distressing, Antiquing, Chalk Paint, Crackle Paint are some of the many techniques you can use at low cost to revamp your tired any piece of furniture or small object... During this 8 sessions class you will be taught how to use standard household paint and brushes to give a new identity to your tired furniture.

I will teach you the tricks of the trade on flat boards so you can achieve your desired goal without breaking the bank... No specialised expensive chalk paint or varnish here... Just specialised skills which you will develop on the day. You will also be able to work on one small piece of furniture or small item/box (small side table is perfect)

You will be welcomed in my studio by a fresh cup of coffee at each session and start with a technical session of 15 mns when you will learn a new skill which you may chose to incorporate in your work. The rest of the time you will work at developing your own style on your own piece with my guidance.

My studio is based a few minutes walks from the Kelvinbridge underground and you will find there plenty of parking albeith some of it is pay and display until 6pm.

Please plan to wear old clothes we will work with paints and brushes which could stain your clothes.

Original boards, all equipement used and basic paint/varnishes are included in the price. You are welcome to bring in any additional paint/varnishes.

If you have any particular requirements make sure to email me your questions in advance on bettysbeautifullife@gmail.com

You may be able to see some of the pieces made by past pupils on my instagram page @bettysbeautifullife

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Upcycling Furniture Workshop are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
