WEEKEND CLASS: Cutting Edge Furniture Upcycling Workshop - 15th/16th October

Regular price £395.00 Sale

This weekend workshop gives you an in-depth experience of creating Done up North style furniture designs along with Nicky at the Studio in Leeds.  

You'll go right through the process of transforming a tired, old piece of furniture from start to finish and even through to a photo shoot at the end. 

You'll walk away with an unique creation plus a wealth of knowledge and confidence to go on to create many more yourself!

It's a fun, informal but information packed workshop quite unlike any other with an emphasis on stripping and finishing wood beautifully and creating unique geometric designs by hand.

The course covers the following

  • Sourcing and understanding vintage furniture
  • In-depth prep including stripping and priming
  • Repairing your furniture including filling
  • How to paint with a smooth modern, professional finish 
  • Planning your new design
  • Masking tape design application techniques
  • Understanding different products available
  • Understanding and applying protective finishes 
  • Refinishing, fitting and replacing hardware
  • Styling and photographing your furniture
  • Useful advice and tips on Furniture Refinishing as a business 

Class sizes are capped to make sure you get plenty of hands on help and guidance over the weekend. 

Why learn from Done Up North?

  • As a leading professional in the industry you can be sure you are learning excellent tried-and-trusted techniques
  • The workshops are packed with value as I share all my tips, insider info and personally gained experience of creating and selling furniture
  • I've worked with hundreds of people, some of whom have moved on to become Professional Furniture Upcyclers themselves!

Here is what some of my past lovely work shoppers have had to say: 

"Just completed the upcycling workshop with Nicky at Done up North. It was a very relaxed and welcoming atmosphere. Lots of useful tips and help along the way. Nicky makes the day very enjoyable and meeting other like minded 'upcyclers' from those of us who are novices to those already giving it a go. I would highly recommend her workshops. I especially enjoyed giving the geometric designs a go (with Nicky's help) and I am pleased with my finished result."

"Nicky was brilliant!!!! A mine of information on all aspects, learning different techniques, with masking tape blows your mind with the outcome. It was a real fun experience and the time just whizzed by. It was great to see other people’s vision for their pieces and the results. Book on to a workshop you will not be disappointed. A great big thumbs up 👍 from me 😁"

"Before I started working with Nicky, I was struggling to know where to start with masking tape design and what order you did the different steps. But I’m so glad I joined her workshop as I learnt all the skills I needed. Nicky really helped me get clear on the process, the tools required, how to avoid mistakes and importantly, when mistakes do happen, how to correct them!"  

"I was not feeling confident about my skills and I was worried about making basic mistakes. Now, I feel so much more prepared to take on work and challenges in my journey with upcycling! Nicky provided awesome resources and guidance that I can keep with me forever."

Attending the workshop: 

You simply need to bring an un-painted medium size piece of furniture to work on and any replacement or additional fittings you wish to add to your piece, plus any design inspiration. 


As an example, a small chest of drawers would be a good size to fully experience all the different stages in a weekend.  The smaller, the more time you have to explore the design & finishing techniques.  

It's anticipated that you have had some experience of painting even simply items at home for for yourself and are looking to improve your technique using professional methods and take your knowledge of upcycling and design further.

If you would like to start from scratch have a look at my One day Furniture Painting workshop!


There is plenty of parking  and the Studio is fully accessible.
