In this workshop, Gabriela will teach you how to upcycle a chair or another small piece of furniture such as a side table or a simple bedside cabinet using decoupage, a technique that allows you to transform a piece of furniture using just paper and glue.

Please note that in order to complete a small piece of furniture you will need two full days, which have to be booked individually. You also have the option of booking just one day and finishing your project at home if you prefer but do be aware that you will not learn as much as you would on a two-day course.

All materials plus a light vegetarian lunch, tea and coffee are included in the cost of the workshop. Due to time constraints it is likely that you will have to varnish your piece of furniture at home.

Did you know?

The French Art Deco designer Jean-Michel Frank used decoupage on some of his earliest Parsons tables in Paris in the 1920s. Decoupage was revived in the United States in the 1960s, as a popular decoration for boxes, trays, wastebaskets, lampshades, chests, and screens.

Gabriela's decoupage class was brilliant - it was informative and relaxed and she was very generous with her materials. I would definitely attend another one of her classes.

It was an exceptional workshop delivered by Gabriela. She was extremely kind, welcoming and so were the other people doing activities there. I picked up new skills, especially to do with prepping and maintaining a good technic. Gabriela was so knowledgeable and her passion about decoupage was very contagious. For anyone who likes learning new DIY skills and wit special interests in upcycling, this is the perfect workshop to go. I’ll definitely go back!

Gabriela was amazing. She was so supportive, full of ideas. The lunch and snacks were great too, way in excess of what I would have expected. It was such a treat of a day and a great opportunity to immerse oneself in a project, supported by expert advice and leave the external world behind. A very therapeutic experience for anyone regardless of experience.

Fantastic workshop, really lovely studio, absolutely loved it. I thoroughly enjoyed the upcycling furniture course. It was very informative and i learned so much. Gabriela Szulman is an excellent tutor and takes time to explain each stage of the course. I would love to attend a future course.

This was such a great class! I worked on a little coffee table which I covered with a world map pattern and pages from old books. I only did one day and it was non-stop even with a small piece of furniture, so that is something to keep in mind when you book. There were a couple of people in the class who were on their second day of working on chairs and they also left with lovely finished pieces but it took them the whole two days to get there. I appreciated being in a small class with plenty of individual help, and found it interesting to see how different all the results were given that we were all using same materials. Wonderful studio and really helpful teacher. Plus healthy lunch and lots of snacks to keep you going during the day! Recommended.

About your host, Gabriela Szulman Art

Gabriela is an artist and maker. She creates prints and collages, greeting cards, jewellery and scarves with images inspired by memory, nostalgia and a love of everything vintage.

Her work is often humorous and whimsical – unless her romantic side takes over and then you enter into a fairy-tale territory of old-fashioned script, pages of books and music scores populated by chivalrous gentlemen, glamorous ladies, butterflies and rabbits. She blends a fusion of painting and digital media – acrylic, watercolour and ink with digital print – onto paper and canvas to create pictures, quirky greetings cards and a range of “art to wear” which so far includes silk scarves and a jewellery collection.

Old photograph albums, vintage documents, magazines, books, cards, knitting pattern books and scraps of writing are things that make Gabriela very happy. Second-hand bookshops, junk shops, market stalls, attics and long-forgotten boxes are her treasure trove.

In addition to her own creative pursuits, she is passionate about inspiring other people and sharing her skills, so she devotes a good portion of her time to teaching.
