In person workshops are restarting in June 2021!
This is for aspiring upcyclers wanting to get started on a new project under guidance before continuing at home with confidence! Many of us are now considering that upcycling an older or second hand piece of furniture to compliment our design scheme is a better option to buying new. Not only are older pieces often better made from quality materials and longer lasting but it’s cost effective and saves good solid furniture from landfill.
You’ll have the opportunity to get started the right way learning how to prep and apply like a professional furniture painter. Using eco friendly preparation and paint products by Cornish Milk Mineral Paint this workshop embraces the sustainable interiors ethos of The Upcycled Trading Co.
You only need bring yourself (dressed in old clothes that you don’t mind getting paint on) and your project. This should be something small and easy to carry like a dining chair or side table but if you want to work on a larger piece you can bring a part of it such as a drawer or door and continue at home afterwards putting into action the tips you’ve picked up. Paint and other materials for use during the workshop are provided.
Paint can be purchased to continue with at home at a 10% discount to the usual retail price.
Bring Your Own Project workshops are priced at £110, they start at 10:00 and finish at 16:00 with a short break for lunch which is included in the price. Please advise in advance of any allergies or dietary requirements.
Venue: The Studio, Roundwood Hall Golf Club, Stone Street, Lyminge, Folkestone CT18 8DJ. Free parking is available on site.
