FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Is this Course Right for Me?
- This is a perfect course if you have never even lifted a paintbrush as I’ll show you everything in detail right from the very start! You don't need any experience at all.
- It’s also great for you if you have some experience but perhaps want to enhance your knowledge or skills or improve a specific aspect of your technique (have a look at the modules below for more detail)
- It’s also great if you already a Pro and skilled in certain areas and want to add new techniques to your repertoire!
- And it’s definitely going to be perfect for you if you want to get started with Masking Tape Design or get better results than you’re currently getting.
What do I need to take the Course?
We'll send you a list of the essential items before the course starts, with some optional extra items depending on the design and the type of piece you choose. It doesn't take a huge investment in equipment to take this Course.
The items are broken down by week too so you don't need to buy everything at once, but just as you come to that stage.
How does it work if I can't join in Live?
The Q&A sessions will be arranged to maximise the opportunity of everyone being able to make at least one session Live with Nicky depending on the time zones of the participants.
Nicky will also be available through the Course Group to support you and answer questions as you work too.

What they say about the Course
Furniture Artist, Gold Earth Design
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. I am so thankful to have found her and to have the opportunity to work with her even from so far away. If you want to learn professional skills and feel confident about the quality of your work I highly recommend the course."
Vintage Furniture Refurbisher, Raymonds Rose
I’d highly recommend Nicky’s workshops / coaching if you are looking for a new venture or help with upcycling furniture. I researched a number of companies who did similar workshops to Nicky before I decided to take the plunge, I love her style and her work ethic and the fact she is incredibly talented just to name a few! I never thought I would be able to start a new business after completing Nicky’s course, it was certainly a game changer for me!
Furniture Artist, Tilly Telstar
If, like me, you are new to the world of furniture painting and you want to produce a contemporary finish to your furniture. Spend the money and take Nicky’s course! The course will give you the skills you need turn out beautiful work. I am now confident that I can sell my work and start my business. Thank you Nicky ! Your online course was extremely helpful to me."
Furniture Designer, Tiggy Lou Creations
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!"
