Furniture Decoupage Workshops
In this workshop, I will teach you how to upcycle a chair or another small piece of furniture such as a side table or a bedside cabinet.
I recommend you start with a very simple item if you’re new to decoupage, a technique that allows you to transform furniture using just paper and glue. During the class, you’ll choose beautiful papers from my extensive collection, and as I guide you through the design process I’ll show you all the tricks involved in applying different types of paper to a hard surface.
You will need to bring your own item of furniture (clean and primed with a coat of white paint). Alternatively, I sometimes have Ikea stools available at cost price – if you’d like to purchase one please contact me to find out what’s in stock at the studio. If you decide to bring your own piece make sure it’s something simple with clean lines and no carving or other embellishments. It should be in good repair and painted in a light colour so that you can start decoupaging straightaway. Get in touch for a chat if you’re not sure about suitability – you can reach me on 07947 103704.
Please note that in order to complete a small piece of furniture you will need two full days, which have to be booked individually. You also have the option of booking just one day and finishing your project at home if you prefer but do be aware that you will not learn as much as you would on a two-day workshop.
The cost of this course is £95 per day, including all materials plus a light vegetarian lunch and refreshments.
If you have any questions please get in touch. Too far from South London, or would like to hold a shorter workshop for a special occasion such as a birthday or a hen party? I may be able to come to you if you gather a group of 6-8 friends – contact me to discuss if you’re interested.
