|What Is The Course About?
This one day course will be an overview on how to spot an upcycling project. You will learn what you need to do to transform a small piece of furniture, or upcycle an old lampshade. This could be done by using Chalk Paint, learning how to create a contrasting stencil and transform your upcycling project into something new. Or perhaps you might be interested in learning decoupage to decorate your piece. Your tutor will contact you prior to attending this course to discuss your individual needs and project work. The tutor will also share many tips and useful information for you to continue upcycling further pieces in your own time.
