Give an old object a new lease of life with the decorative craft of decoupage. Bring in any medium sized item, made of pottery, china, wood, cardboard or plastic that you’d like to make over such as a box, bowl, flowerpot, plate, tray, table mat or vase and you will be shown how by layering and lacquering different paper cut outs you can transform it into a new piece.
Decoupage has been used for centuries across Europe and the Far East, but was particularly popular with the Victorians who would create beautiful screens and furniture. Find out how we can use it today to change everyday items into something special.
Artist, Pat Barrow, trained at the Royal College of Art, and has been a designer of ceramic decoration for Sainsbury’s Rosenthall and Hornsey Potteries. She will show you the tools you will need, different lacquers and glue, how to choose images, work out the best design, applying it to your object and how you can use these techniques to brighten up anything around your home.
