Upcycle your own item of furniture


Learn the basics of upcycling  your own item of furniture with our vintage chalk-paint and distressing workshop.



At the start of the day you will learn various painting techniques on samples boards, before you start to paint and distress your own piece of furniture.

All materials will be provided as well as a paint brush and apron to take home.

We advise that the item you are thinking of bringing is small enough to carry and easy to transport, for example: a trunk, side table, large picture frame, mirror frame or chair.

Don’t worry if you don’t get to finish on the day as we stock all paint colours in store for you to purchase and finish your up-cycling project at home.

There will be plenty of refreshments throughout the day including a lunch.
