Upcycling Furniture Course – starting 23rd April 2018
Let North Warwickshire & Hinckley College introduce you to finishing techniques for upcycling tired furniture pieces that require a new lease of life. The course will focus on basic repairs, transformations, paint effects and decoupage.
The course requires you to attend our Hinckley campus for one evening per week 6 pm – 8 pm for a duration of 5 weeks at a cost of £65. You will need to bring one piece of furniture no bigger than a 3 drawer unit as you must be able to carry it safely into the workshop. It is recommended that learners wear appropriate clothing to the activity as paint or cleaning fluid (turpentine or white spirit) can stain clothes.
