Event description

Description

In this course you will learn how to upcycle a chair or another small piece of furniture using just paint, paper and glue. I will teach you the wonderful technique of decoupage, which you can then use at home to upcycle other items. Once you've learned it, all you need is time, patience, and a few very affordable materials and tools - some of which you may already have. I will give you a handout to remind you the basic steps of the technique, and suggest where you can purchase materials and tools.

During the workshop, you will be able to select a variety of papers from my own collection to transform a piece of furniture into your unique creation through decoupage. I will guide you through the design process and show you all the tricks of applying papers of different thickness to a hard surface. You can either bring your own item (clean and primed with a coat of white paint) or purchase one of my chairs for £20. If you're interested in this option please let me know and I'll email you a picture of what I have in stock.

Please note that in order to complete a small piece of furniture you will need two full days, which have to be booked individually. You also have the option of booking just one day and finishing your project at home if you prefer but do be aware that you will not learn as much as you would on the two-day course.

All materials plus a light vegetarian lunch, tea and coffee are included in the cost of the workshop. Due to time constraints it is likely that you will have to varnish your piece of furniture at home.

Bookings are non-refundable but you can transfer your ticket to someone else if you are unable to attend - just email me their contact details.
