Two-Day Masterclass, Finishing & Upcycling Techniques for Furniture : 12th & 13th January 2019

This brand new two-day masterclass with Upcycling artist, Elisabeth Viguie Culshaw, will teach you everything you need to know to transform and breathe new life into any piece of furniture.

Running 10:30am-4:30pm Saturday 12th January and 10:30am-3:30pm Sunday 13th January.

Over the two days you will learn all the basics of upcycling and special finishes to remake a small piece of furniture, such as a box, dining chair, or bedside table.

On day one you will be introduced to the paints and tools used for upcycling, you will be shown special techniques such as stencilling, distressing, and decoupage which you will have the opportunity to practice. You will then prepare and prime your furniture ready for the next day!

On day two you will focus on applying your chosen technique to your item of furniture and giving a new life to an old preloved piece. Bring a small piece of furniture along with you or choose one on the day from our selection at the Edinburgh Remakery, which you’ll be able to take home with you after the workshop for an additional £15.

All materials and tools are included in the cost, as well as teas and coffees to fuel your creativity. This workshop is suitable for all skill levels as no previous experience or knowledge is required; just an enthusiasm for getting crafty!
