Claire Sutherland reviewed: French Polishing & Woodcare - Beginners Course - 1 Day

"As a total beginner to any sort of furniture restoration this was the ideal workshop for me. I wanted to understand how to smarten second-hand furniture that I bought from charity shops. Just for me, not as any kind of business. Oliver was able to explain how to French polish, step by step and provided excellent pre course notes with all the materials needed. He also emailed me afterwards a specific list of what to buy and what I could leave out as I'm not planning only doing loads of furniture. I took 2 small pieces of furniture, one was in need of too much repair to French polish as a beginner, but Oliver showed me how to wax it, so I went home with that improved too. Good fun day, would recommend!"

Angela Harper reviewed: Contemporary Furniture Refinishing & Upcycling with Woodcare - 1 Day Beginners

"A very useful and informative workshop. I learned some techniques that I will definitely use going forward when recycling furniture. Ollie was a great tutor and made me feel at ease as it was my first experience at this type of event. I welcomed his advice on how to transform my piece of furniture which will take pride of place in my hallway. A very relaxing and therapeutic day thank you."

Helen reviewed: 5 Day Professional Furniture Refinishing Workshop - Traditional & Contemporary

"I did the 5 day professional furniture refinishing course with Ollie in April as I wanted to set up my own part-time business refurbishing vintage furniture. The course was excellent, covering everything from stripping, sanding, oiling/waxing and painting to get a very professional finish. Ollie is very patient and flexible in tailoring the course to your needs. It is a great mix of hands on practical work, alongside written notes enabling you to refer back when you need a reminder. Ollie is also very generous in helping with ad hoc queries post course when you need a little extra direction. I can’t recommend this course enough and hope to go back for more modules in future."
