NEW FURNITURE UPCYCLING WORKSHOPS AT PETIT MIRACLE
Starting Saturday 5th April 2014, every first and second Saturday of the month will officially be furniture upcycling day!

Join us at the Petit Miracle shop in London West12 to work on an item of your choice….

Skills needed: in short, none.
The session is suitable for all skill levels, including:

  • beginners
  • those who know some of the basics, wanting to build their skill
  • and those wanting to refresh their memories.

You will learn the following:

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

Price: £20 per person. This includes all tools and materials.
Please note: if you would like to purchase the item you have worked on,
you will be given a discount off of the purchase price.

Bring your own item supplement: £5.
If have your own furniture item you wish to bring in, upcycle and take home,
we need to charge £5 additional to the workshop costs,
to cover tools and materials – so the total price would be £25.

Concessions:
There is a limited number of spaces offered, at £5,
to people who have experienced homelessness, and/or the long-term unemployed.

West12 here we come!

Finally the time has come. After our successful 6 month pop-up shop, we are opening a permanent shop back in the West12 Shopping Centre. Located on the first floor you will find the same great workshops on offer and beautiful reclaimed and upcycled wares. To make it happen we are looking for more great volunteers in the following areas:

-Tutors/trainers/teachers with furniture restoration experience.
-We are also looking to exhibit eco-friendly, upcycling fashion designers who may want to showcase their designs within our shop.
-Any and all artists/creative types that want to contribute to our pop-up shop experience.
-Qualified builders to offer DIY workshops to vulnerable adults and at risk youth. Teaching the health and safety and basic DIY tasks.
-Qualified builder to help with the set-up of the pop-up shop.

We believe that volunteering needs to be mutually beneficial. We have loads of tasks, skills needed and are happy to offer references, share your work with our wider network, and if applicable, you can use this as opportunity to enhance your portfolio.

The shop is due to open 28 January with trading to commence on 30 Jan so we we will need all the help we can get to make it happen.

Please get in touch, if you or anyone you know, who may be interested.
