Upcycling Workshops at House and Garden Show – Book Now

out-of-the-darkOver the weekend of the 28 February and 1 March the Old Fire Station Gallery will be transformed in to a centre for upcycling as part of the Henley House and Garden Show. There will be various workshops run by www.outofthedark.org and Lynne Lambourne of www.lovenellie.co.uk.

The Saturday will see a chance for the adults to take part in either a “Learn to Upcycle Furniture Using Chalk Paint’ workshop run by Lynne Lambourne or in the afternoon Jay from Out of the Dark will be teaching basic furniture restoration. You may have seem Jay on the Kirsty Allsopp Christmas show where he demonstrated how to make a Christmas Tree from pallets.

On the Sunday there will be workshops for Children age 6 and over, where they will have a chance to upcycle something for their bedroom. Lynne Lambourne appeared in the BBC2 ‘Great Interior Design Challenge’ and also has her own blog www.lovenellie.wordpress.com which focuses on Interior Design and upcycling.

For more information on the courses or to book your space please e mail lynne@lovenellie.co.uk or look on the website www.thehenleyhouseandgarenshow.

The idea is to encourge people think carefully about what they have in their home and insead of buying something new maybe upcycling something they already have. Once people learn how easy and satisfying it is to upcycle something there really is no stopping them.

Lynne Lambourne who also runs Love Local markets said, “There will also be a Home and Interiors ‘Love Local Market’ in the Kings Arms Barn showcasing some of the amazing talented small local companies who make beautiful things for the home . We have so much talent in the Henley area the Henley House and Garden show was the perfect opportunity for these companies to have a high street presense something that normaly would be very difficult. So please pop along and support them.”
