Upcycling furniture*

Upcycling furniture is really ‘in’ right now and you could be a part of the trend. Maybe you have old furniture you want renovate or want to try your hand at shabby-chic or create your own unique style? Complete this six-week course and give your home a fresh look with customised, eco-friendly furniture.

Or maybe you’d rather expand your skills for work? From people taking on projects and commissions, to obtaining discarded furniture and giving it a make-over to sell either privately or via online stores such as ebay or etsy, there’s plenty of reasons to try this course!

No prior experience is required for this course, so it’s suitable for anyone. To find out more, email john.leeson@barnfield.ac.uk.

Wood crafts*

Another real ‘hands-on’, practical course for those with an eye for creating something new out of nothing! Do you have some unwanted wood lying around, maybe a branch that’s fallen in your garden in the winter weather? This course can give you the experience and skills to give it a new lease of life!

Make your own wood products out of recycled timber including toys, coffee tables, shelf units, light holders, ornaments and more!

This course is open to anyone, whether or not you have any experience in wood-work. For further details, email john.leeson@barnfield.ac.uk.
