DATES FOR YOUR DIARY – 2019
Tuesday 16 July
IKEA Meatballs and Making
Make a night of it at IKEA with an upcycling craft session ran by me. Enjoy a meal* in the restaurant, followed by the time and space to enjoy some making and creating.
You’ll be given a theme and all the materials to get creative by adding a personal twist to everyday objects.
By adding value to an object you’re giving it a whole new lease of life and ultimately saving it from an early throw-away into landfill. It’s about repurposing, upcycling, learning new techniques, trying out tools you’ve never tried before, meeting new people and giving yourself a little me-time.
Sessions cost £10 per person and includes a meal, drink and all craft materials. Payable on arrival in cash on the night.
*1 portion of 10 meatballs/veggieballs with mash/chips is included in ticket price
**Drink included in ticket price will be tea/filter coffee or a refillable soft drink
If you’d like to hire me to run upcycling workshops or give a talk for your event, please email me on firstname.lastname@example.org
Do you love the idea of upcycling and revamping but don’t know where to start?
Designed to get creative juices flowing and give you creative license to take unused items and give them a whole new lease of life. You know what they say one man’s junk is another man’s treasure, and that’s exactly what these workshops will be doing!
Learn the basics of revamping old and unloved accessories and furniture and how you to update homewares to fit with new schemes. We’ll use paint, pallets, wool, buttons, fabric remnants and anything else we can reuse. We’ll revamp old chairs with paint and fabric, strip back old lampshades and turn them into some new and shiny ones, learn paint techniques and give you the confidence to give it a go, saving you money along the way.
I’ll show you how to spot an upcycling opportunity, what you should keep in your tool box and when to walk away!
Steel toe caps are optional – tea and biscuits are compulsory.
