In this weekend course you will get the chance to try out a range of upcycling techniques to bring new life to an old piece of furniture! Bring a small cabinet, cupboard or set of drawers that you would like to upcycle. You can also bring handles/door knobs, or any plastic or wooden objects that you would like to make into handles. There will also be a selection available to buy in the workshop if you don’t have your own.
The course is aimed at beginners and will show you:
- How to prepare surfaces
- Paints and painting techniques
- How to customise an item of furniture by making, adapting or replacing handles and door knobs
