I attended Jo’s workshop in February and was very impressed. Jo is very knowledgable and patient and taught us lots of amazing techniques. An old childhood bookcase became a very modern and refreshed piece of furniture thanks to Jo’s advice and guidance. The cakes were yummy too. Highly recommended the Boho Shes and Jo. Can’t wait for level 2.

Thank you so much for your lovely words Jane. It's so great to receive such positive feedback. Your bookcase looked gorgeous and I'm delighted you enjoyed the day...and the cakes! :-)

Great workshop attended in February, learnt some great techniques. If you are looking to upcycle any old furniture I would highly recommend on Thebohoshed courses. Thanks Jo looking forward to the next one.
