Are you looking for fun craft workshops in London? Why not spend the day enjoying some planet-friendly DIY home decor?

With this upcycling workshop, you will learn how to re-invent a chair or another small piece of furniture such as a side table or a simple bedside cabinet using decoupage, a technique that allows you to transform a piece of furniture using just paper and glue.

This fun DIY craft is a wonderful way to spend the day unleashing your creativity and making something beautiful for your home.

At the end of this upcycling workshop, you'll be able to take home your special decoupage creation. Not only will you leave with a new and improved piece of furniture for your home, but you'll also leave with some newfound decoupage and upcycling skills for future creations!

Please note:
Please note that depending on the size and complexity of your piece of furniture you may need two full days, which have to be booked individually. You also have the option of booking just one day and finishing your project at home (all materials supplied).

Aside from this class, this teacher also has the following coming up:

Gabriela Szulman


Gabriela is an artist and maker. She creates pictures, decorative objects, greeting cards and jewellery with images inspired by memory, nostalgia and a love of everything vintage.

Her work is often humorous and whimsical – unless her romantic side takes over and then you enter into a fairy-tale territory of old-fashioned script, pages of books and music scores populated by chivalrous gentlemen, glamorous ladies, butterflies and rabbits. She blends a fusion of painting and digital media – acrylic, watercolour and ink with digital print – onto paper and canvas to create a wide range of work.

In addition to her own creative endeavours, she is passionate about inspiring other people and sharing her skills, so she devotes a good portion of her time to teaching.

Gabriela Szulman is COVID-19 aware This means that this teacher won't run this class if they've had flu symptoms in the last 14 days, and will adhere to relevant government restrictions (e.g. maximum number of guests).
