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

This weekend course takes you right through the process of transforming a wooden piece of furniture of your choice (to be agreed in advance) from start to finish and even through to a finished piece 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. 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 cover the following (what techniques you use will depend on the project you bring and your planned design)

  • 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. 

And once you've successfully completed the class you can join my Facebook Group or Business Coaching group Membership to get continued support and advice as you develop your skills on your next projects. 

Why learn from Done Up North?

  • As a well-regarded leading professional in the industry you can be sure you are learning excellent techniques from one of the best!
  • The workshops are packed with value as I share all my tips, insider info and personally gained experience of creating and selling furniture to help short cut you to the good stuff and help build your confidence and resilience too.
  • 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 workshoppers 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."
