About the Course
This one day beginners course at our Witney workshop is designed to give the student the fundamental basics of French polishing and woodcare and to give them a hands on day leaving them with the vital practical skills needed to refinish furniture.
Each student will work on a small or large piece of their choice allowing them to go through the full process within one or two working days. The smaller piece being for the one day course and the larger piece being for the two day course.
The course covers the following –
Health and Safety
Polishing materials, tools and personal set up list
Stripping, neutralising and sanding/wire wool techniques
Staining and grain fillers
Shellacs, touching in and waxes
Brush and rubber techniques
The course is designed for groups of 1 or 2 so to maximise the students learning and for the items of furniture to be finished before the course ends.
If you wanted a bespoke package then we can mix and match with my painted furniture course to make sure you gain everything you need from the workshop.
