Be Creative - Be Sustainable - Mindfully Make
In this workshop, The ReCreators, will teach you how to restore wooden furniture and safely use tools and materials.
There will be a health and safety briefing at the start of the workshop to inform participants of safety precautions before we begin using tools and materials.
You will learn how to strip, sand, clean, stain and either oil/wax or lacquer. To keep costs down, the learning group will work on a combined project. But feel free to bring in a small item to practice on.
All participants must wear covered shoes and non-flowing clothing (tight-ish!). Some work will be outdoors, so please we a sun hat and sun screen.
The workshop will provide the following:
- Health & Safety Briefing
- Step by step refurbishment guidelines
- Furniture paint stripping

- Preparation for staining
- Staining, Waxing, Oiling & Lacquering
