Create your own Vintage, Distressed or Rustic furniture in this furniture upcycling class!
During these classes, you will learn about upcycling paint techniques which can be applied to your own piece of small furniture. After a practice session using a range of techniques, you will develop your own personal style, gaining the confidence needed to achieve a fantastic finish on your chosen item. We will also practice crackle paint!
We will work with standard DIY paint and readily available tools, to demystify the myth that you need specialist, expensive, branded paint to achieve a great finish. You will learn to crackle, distress, use copies of old prints and bits of stencilling to help you achieve your look.
After 25 hours in 8 sessions (New increased sessions in a block of 8 weeks to allow trying your hands at some new slightly lengthier techniques…) you will not be able to pass a skip without picking up vintage discarded pieces...
For this class all you need is an open mind, a passion for hand-made things, and one or two small pieces of furniture.
