Upcycling furniture & sustainability workshops
Our furniture upcycling workshops are for all adults and for children aged 10 to 16 years who are accompanied by an adult, with an ethos of sustainability underpinning the fun learning throughout the day. Join a small group for a fun and intimate day getting painty with a piece of furniture. You will not only learn the basics of upcycling old furniture into new, but how the process has a near-neutral carbon footprint thus promoting sustainability and longevity. You will see how to appreciate eco-friendly lifestyle practices and your day may also spark entrepreneurial ideas for the future. This is an opportunity for parents, grandparents, aunties, uncles, godparents or carers to spend quality one-on-one time bonding with their young charge. Private workshops are also available to book with mutually agreed dates and budget.

I’m Kirsty, founder of Upcycle Arcade. I have taken an idea, a hobby, a longstanding desire to create something from nothing and Upcycle Arcade is the result. Upcycling saves our heritage and many heirlooms from landfill plus allows all manner of creativity to run riot! It is mentally rewarding, sufficiently fruitful and highly addictive: all my spare time is spent on Upcycle Arcade in some way. Thankfully I am well supported by my husband and three teenage children.
