Furniture & Restoration Workshops London

Furniture Restoration at The Goodlife Centre

Learn to build, upcycle with paint or restore  your own furniture.

Our selection of furniture making, upcycling and furniture restoration workshops will give you the skills and the confidence to build something new from scratch or take on the restoration of a neglected heirloom.

All of our workshops are for absolute beginners or even those with rusty skills and involve lots of hands-on practice under the guidance of skilled and patient tutors.

We have several different workshops that will teach you a portfolio of upcycling with paint,wood  restoration and furniture making skills and it does not matter where you dive in first.

By learning to make your own shelf in a day, or your own table over several weeks, you will be learning classic carpentry techniques that you can go on to use to make other projects at home.

Or perhaps you want to learn to upcycle furniture that you have found or discovered so that it becomes a feature once more? We’ll show you several techniques to repair and creatively improve your disheveled finds.

For treasured antiques that require careful restoration skills, you will be guided through a variety of techniques that professional restorers use.

All personal protection, use of tools and materials are included. Learn more about each workshop by selecting details below.
