Finishing and upcycling techniques for furniture

This creative, practical and fun workshop will give you an introduction to a range of techniques for finishing and upcycling furniture.

Throughout the day you will be given expert advice and tuition on how to prepare your piece of furniture ready for upcycling, and how to use paints, wood stains, colour compositions, waxes and varnishes to create your desired finish.

There will be plenty of opportunity for supervised practise on your piece of furniture, which you can upcycle and personalise any way you wish with your own unique design.

Choose from a piece provided by the Remakery which you can take home with you at the end of the workshop for just £15, or bring along your own furniture to work on.

All are welcome as this workshop is suitable for both beginners with no previous experience of woodwork and upcycling, and those with more advanced knowledge.

All tools and materials are provided and included in the price of the workshop.

By signing up to one of our workshops, you agree to allow Remade in Edinburgh to use any photos and videos taken of you during these workshops to be used for these purposes.
