As a beginner in furniture restoration, you will learn a number of basic skills which are required to bring a piece of wooden furniture back to its former glory.
During this hands-on practical course, you will work within a supportive group environment to gain the confidence and skills to restore furniture or wooden objects.
The course is open to adults aged 19+.
There are no formal entry requirements.
Over the six weeks we will cover:
• Health and safety
• Correct use of tools
• Repair techniques – dents and scratches
• Stripping and polishing
• Hints and tips
There are no assessment criteria - just observe, have a go and enjoy!
You will need to bring along your chosen piece/s of furniture or wooden objects.
All materials will be included in the cost you pay.
You will be working within a practical environment so safety shoes must be worn in the workshop at all times. We can provide toe-capped attachments through prior arrangement.
