This is an introduction to furniture painting and up-cycling for chairs.
Each week, there will be a three hour session and the course runs for three weeks.
You will learn how to give pre-loved chairs a new lease on life and recover the seat pad with your own printed and designed fabric.
No prior experience is necessary.
At the end of this course, you will have created a newly-designed chair. You will also gain an enhanced knowledge and understanding of how the process of silk screen printing works and how several colours and patterns can be added or developed.
The process is water based and non-toxic.
