7. Upcycling Furniture with Expert Tuition
During this one week furniture upcycling course you will learn how to do several projects with step by step video instructions and personal guidance from expert upholsterer and author Juliette Goggin. You will learn how to use decoupage to transform anything from an old jewellery box to a chest of drawers with ordenance survey maps or botanical illustrations. You will learn to recover a drop-in seat chair to transform a piece of second hand furniture. Lastly you will learn how to create designer vintage cushions. Your tutor Juliette is an author and broadcaster and is on hand to answer all your queries and help with your own project throughout the week. If you frequent auctions, second hand shops, car boots fairs and street markets, you'll know how inexpensive good second hand furniture can be. With this in mind you will learn a few projects you can tackle to bring some upcycled furniture into your home. Juliette has a career in product design and development, where she worked with fashion designers such as Cath Kidston and Julien Macdonald, who helped Juliette to understand and appreciate both the creative and the manufacturing process. This in turn led Juliette to create her own fragranced gift and home collection, Juliette at Home, which reflected her love of all things recycled and vintage. It became a great success with independent retailers and department stores who loved the upcycled cake stands and candles in repurposed cups and vintage glassware. It also gave Juliette the excuse to spend a lot of time scouring carboot fairs and second hand shops in search of all manner of things that she could repurpose into my own quirky range. Juliette was thrilled to be asked to take part in Super Scrimpers on Channel 4 where she shared this love of crafting with the show’s participants, whilst also giving lots of money saving tips. At the same time Juliette also co wrote her first book, Junk Genius, with her talented friend Stacy Sirk. The book featured endless ideas for repurposing everyday objects and encouraged anyone with a creative flair to have a go at lots of simple, step by step crafting projects in their home.
