Event description


Do you have a tired piece of furniture sitting in the house but don't know where to start? In this exciting new workshop for women I will decode the mysteries of furniture renovation and make these projects doable. I've also added a quick tutorial on making your own reclaimed timber grazing board.

After a successful workshop last year I can't wait to see more women confidently remaking furniture for your home. I've created more samples and added content from the feedback of participants.

Join us in my brand new studio workspace and connect with other like-minded women who share a passion for the curbside find and appreciate the quality of solid well built furniture. Limited to 10 seats to keep the class intimate so you can have individual guidance within the workshop hours.

I will also be doing a demonstration to making your own reclaimed timber grazing board.

Discover the magic of sandpaper, simple repaits and paint techniques. I have broken the entire process down into the most easy to follow steps and instructions. The last half hour will be a Q&A time with me to consult on some of your own projects to help you get started.

There is nothing more satisfying than enjoying something every day that you have handmade. Whether your style is Farmhouse, Industrial, Scandi, Cali or Provincial the techniques I teach are universal.

About me

I've always loved rearranging furniture and styling spaces. After renovating two houses I was missing the renovation process and turned my energy to furniture. There is so much potential in what looks worn out around us.

Check out my FB or instagram account if you'd like to see more of my work.

I've made plenty of mistakes and was terrified of turning on a belt sander for the first time but now I realise how easy all these things are once you know how. I've discovered the therapy of restoring furniture. "We move what we're learning from our heads to our hearts through our hands." Brene Brown, Author and research professor at the University of Houston.
