workshopPMIflyerWeb

On Thursday 28th November 2013, the wonderful and weird volunteers of Petit Miracle Interiors will guide you towards creative excellence in our all new FIX-A-CHAIR evening…

You will learn – you guessed it – how to upcycle a chair!

Time & place
From 5.30 to 7.30 pm on Thursday, November 28th at the Petit Miracles Shepherd’s Bush, first floor of West12 centre.

Skills needed
In short: none. This session is suitable for all skill levels, but is particularly focused on complete beginners, those who know some of the basics but want to build their skill, and those wanting to refresh their memories.

Skills to be learned
Upcycling a chair will help you gain the following skills:

  • minor furniture repairs
  • sanding furniture
  • painting furniture
  • waxing / finishing furniture

Price
We ask for a contribution of £10 per person for the costs of this evening extravaganza. The price includes all tools and materials. Please note: the chair you have upcycled will remain the property of Petit Miracle Interiors to sell in our shop. You will be given the opportunity to buy the chair you have worked on.

If have your own chair you wish to bring in, upcycle and take back home with you, there is a premium of £5 additional to the workshop costs, to cover tools and materials. So the total workshop price if you will be working on an item for yourself would then be £15.

The workshops are offered free of charge to people who have experienced homelessness, and/or the long-term unemployed.

Enroll now, space is very limited!

Sign up and pay in advance in the Petit Miracle shop, first floor of the West12 centre, Shepherd’s Bush, or send an email to elisicia@petitmiracles.org.uk
