Have you always wanted to have a go at upcycling but just don't know where to start?
This workshop is designed to give you all the essentials to start your very own upcycling project and give you the confidence to create something unique.
An introduction to furniture upcycling workshop where you'll learn how to prep your piece, be guided on colour and geometric tape design, produce a smooth, crisp painted finish and learn the foundations of creating bespoke pieces for your home.
This is a beginner course so no previous experience is necessary.
We will cover:
- Prep - the most important bit! Including cleaning, sanding and minor repairs
- Colour - how to choose colours that compliment each other
- Design - how to turn your ideas into a taped geometric design
- Taping - the essentials to getting crisp, clean lines
- Painting - how to get a smooth paint finish
- Finish - my 'go to' finishes for furniture
This will all be taught from my garden workshop in Rushden, Northamptonshire.
