Furniture restoration and repair

Where
27 Sydney St
Marrickville NSW 2204
Australia
When

Thursday 25 July from 6pm to 9pm Saturday 14 September from 10am to 3pm

Participants bring a piece they would like to get started repairing, and through collaborative engagement, each person will learn about a variety of common problems and repairs for different pieces of furniture.

As a group we will go around to discuss what can and cannot be done for each piece before beginning work to help get them started on the road to renewal.

Working under experienced instructors, through example and demonstration participants will learn about the restoration process, identifying damage, identifying furniture components, understanding common faults in furniture, and how to best resolve them. On top of discussing the specific concerns of the pieces participants bring in, they will also learn the basics of tool use, cleaning, veneer repair, glues and adhesives, fixing broken components, replacing losses, reviving a finish, and some other tips and tricks to get more life out of your furniture.
