Description

  • A 2 day intensive course for beginners and those wanting to improve their knowledge and technique. It is a practical and theoretical excursion into the world of wood finishing. This will include surface preparation, staining, French Polishing, grain filling, and wax finishing. 
     
  •   You will learn to differentiate between a choice of finishing systems and practice their application. 
  • Students will make up their own superior materials, such as wood stain, shellac , wax polish, & wax sticks and then be taught how to apply them to a supplied project.
     
  • Most materials (including the course project) will be supplied within the price, but students will be asked to bring along some basic items.:- Airtight Tupperware container - min. 6" square x 3" high, 2 empty washing up liquid bottles (clean & dry), Pair of Marigold rubber gloves, Pair of safety glasses, Flat bladed wallpaper/paint scraper, apron or other protective clothing - Course aprons are available to buy for £15 
     
  • Course notes will be provided.

    No longer will you be limited to a big brush and a tin of varnish, as you are made aware of the different effects you can achieve by selecting different finishing systems.

 

  • I strongly recommend that time and budget permitting you take both the Introductory & Intermediate course at the same time. This will both increase your finishing education but also save you mone - see Special Offers for the bundle price.

 

         There will be a maximum of 8 students on this course
