Decorative Techniques for Furniture – Stencilling, Hand Painting & Decoupage

March 26, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Decorative Techniques for Furniture

In celebration of our last weekend of workshops at Tribe Porty we’re offering a 10% discount on this workshop! Future workshops will run at our new studio space in Chesser House.

Come join us and learn about decorative techniques for furniture – handy skills for the keen upcycler!

Relax and let your creativity flow whilst you learn new skills and techniques for decorating furniture, we will guide you through:

  • Stencilling – we’ll have a supply of stencils and will also show you how you can make your own
  • Simple Hand Painting – for those wanting to get creative with small brushes and perhaps a little mark making
  • Decoupage – we’ll have a small supply of decoupage images and types of paper for you to choose from
  • Guilding Wax – add a subtle hint of shimmer to your design for the perfect finishing touch!

You’re welcome to bring along pre-painted furniture to work on alternatively we’ll provide boards, that can be made into decorative pieces.

Furniture upcycling gives you the creative freedom to custom design your own furniture and home. Following the workshop, you’ll be fully equipped with the skills and knowledge needed to confidently use the materials and decorative techniques covered.

Light refreshments will be provided. We also offer a 10% discount on furniture painting kits, tools and materials purchased during workshops.

Join us and learn how to upcycle! 

Please note the workshop will be held on the first floor of the building which is accessed by a set of stairs or stair lift (for disabled access). There is free on-street parking outside this venue but it can be busy.  The area is well serviced by local buses.
