Furniture Upcycling

We all have an old piece of furniture that we don’t want to throw away. This course will introduce you to fantastic ways to transform your used or unwanted item into a very unique piece of art.


You will learn a good range of paint and decorative techniques like distressing, decoupage, gilding, basic stencilling and appliques.

This is a hands-on course, for the first class please bring an old wooden picture frame (medium size, must be in good condition), apron, paint brushes, good medium scissors, disposable gloves, small glass bottles with lids, newspaper.
