Bekki reviewed: Furniture Painting Workshop (levels 1&2 techniques covered) in Preston, Lancashire

"This weekend I spent the most relaxing and productive day I've had in a long time, while attending an Upcycling Workshop with Jo (The Boho Shed). Jo is such a fantastic tutor, her passion and knowledge really shines through as she runs through lots of lovely techniques and top tips for upcycling pieces of furniture, picture frames etc. it is super easy to really immerse yourself into workshop. There was a choice of refreshments on arrival, I chose a lovely refreshing peppermint tea and of course, freshly made and dressed scones with cream and jam......and fresh raspberries. Such a lovely touch to create a really welcoming and comfortable environment. During the morning we learnt about all the different techniques, then Jo took the time to understand each of our visions for our pieces of furniture, then after lunch we were let loose on being creative - in which I completely lost track of time and just enjoyed the creative process. Saturday was in fact Earth Hour day, where the environmental/sustainable message is to spend an hour doing a sustainable activity - what better than taking a tired piece of furniture and giving it new lease of energy. Thanks, Jo, for such a relaxing and creative workshop; really looking forward to the upholstery workshop next! 🥰"

The Boho Shed responded:

"Lovely Bekki, what can I say! Thank you so very much for your gorgeous review and very kind words. I'm absolutely delighted you enjoyed the workshop so much and your Dad would have been very proud of you for restoring his precious piece of furniture. I love it that you were lost in creativity. What a great day we had. I look forward to seeing you again next month at the upholstery workshop. Until then....x"

Lorna Prescott reviewed: Furniture Painting Workshop (levels 1&2 techniques covered) in Preston, Lancashire

"Had a fantastic day at the furniture painting workshop on Saturday. I learned so much about the variety of products and techniques that can be used and met some lovely people on the course. Jo’s an excellent teacher with a vast array of knowledge with time for everyone. I've definitely got the painting bug and can’t wait to get started on some home projects. I was so impressed with the course that I’ve enrolled on the upholstery workshop next month!"

The Boho Shed responded:

"Ahhh Lorna, what a lovely review, thank you so much. You were an absolute pleasure to teach and made such a lovely job of your frames. I'm looking forward to seeing your ongoing painting creations and looking forward to seeing you next month for some upholstery. Many thanks again. Jo x"

Lynda reviewed: Beginners DIY & Home Maintenance Workshop in Cheadle, Gr Manchester (1 Day)

"Thanks Jo for a great day earlier this week in Cheadle. The people were lovely and I learned lots. I am now ready to buy a drill (I’m no longer scared of them) and to get started on all those little jobs around the house. I really enjoyed the workshop and it’s suitable for complete beginners as well as people with a bit of knowledge. The cakes were good too! "

The Boho Shed responded:

"I’m so pleased you enjoyed the day and Mum’s cakes Lynda, you were a pleasure to teach. Thank you for your lovely review. 🙏💕"
