Whether you're an upcycling novice or been doing it for years, anyone and everyone interested in upcycling furniture is welcome to come to our FREE workshop. It will be a practical, hands on session where we will aim to transform several pieces of furniture in the shop. We have a few artists joining us with good upcycling experience between them to pass on their upcycling knowledge and expertise. The upcycled furniture will remain in the shop but our aim is for you to 1. Have a great time! And 2. Leave having gleaned some fab ideas for your own home and be inspired to go and realise them! So come along, bring a friend, you are more than welcome. ***Please message us to let us know you will be coming as there are limited spaces available***
