More Information on this Workshop

This is a hands-on workshop which allows students the opportunity to be introduced to furniture restoration/refinishing on the wooden objects they bring in. Every wooden object is unique and so are its problems. This class will teach students how to restore their furniture as well as total refinishing. Each piece of furniture brought in will have its own refinishing/restoration plan which means a variety of subjects to learn from each other’s projects. Knowledge begins with getting the object structurally sound with regluing and repairing. Next is how to examine the condition of the coating to decide if some gentle solvent cleaning and recoating is possible. If not, learning how to decide which furniture stripper is needed to totally remove the existing coating. Once the piece has been stripped it then needs surface preparation, coloring and a new coat of finish. Demonstrations and discussions of spot-repair will also be covered. Anyone interested in learning the basics of the craft of furniture restoration/refinishing will find this class to be a valuable experience. Note: The class is not limited to finishing old furniture. If you don’t have antiques to restore/refinish, bring a few of your small unfinished projects instead.
