The basic stepping stones of furniture upcycling explained

  • 150 New Zealand dollars
  • Location 1

Service Description

Do you look round your house and see mismatched furniture, or pass me downs from family members that are precious but do not match your décor? This course takes you through the basics: cleaning and prepping your item, and all the products & tools required. Included in the 3-hour Saturday morning workshop is a workroom & showroom tour, light refreshments and a 60 page professional workbook. Then the fun begins when I let you loose on the range of upcycling paints (chalk, mineral, enamel) etc available in the NZ market (names such as Annie Sloan, The Artisan Company, Karen Walker, Rustoleum, Voodoo Molley, Jolie etc ... there's quite a few. This is a 'try before you buy session' and your workbook has a page on each paint option with details of where you can purchase, price etc. The last part of the workshop covers 6 painting techniques. You will leave the workshop buzzing with ideas, inspiration and most importantly knowledge!! Workshops are small size (maximum 6), interactive and fun.
