The Upcycling Volunteer Project was run by Steve from “Galleria”.
The first step was to clean the chairs in readiness for the paint and then once a colour was chosen it was applied. Next week the team will be learning stenciling and other techniques to personalise the chairs.
“Frenchic”is the paint product being used…
Frenchic Furniture Paint has no hidden nasties ( all our ingredients are written on the can). It is an all natural, chalk and mineral paint that requires no stirring, shaking or the addition of water. No added VOC’s, toxins or solvents and it has virtually no smell (which is important when painting indoors!). You’ll find that it is creamy, rich and has superior coverage.
The workshop received a double thumbs up from the LIVE staff and customers. The customers feedback was that they thoroughly enjoyed the chance to learn a new skill and are all excited to see the end results. One customer who often needs additional support to master an activity, took to this project like a duck to water and excelled. Steve the tutor was very impressed with the enthusiasm and highly commended their work. Two customers in particular stood out to him!
If anyone has any old furniture they no longer want especially wooden chairs Wellingborough LIVE would be very grateful for them.
