Antique Furniture Restoration

Learn how to restore and repair antique furniture, reviving and caring for original patination and finishes. Taught by master restorer Christopher Booth, you will reduce furniture to component parts, clean and repair joints, match veneers, stringing and timber for colour and quality. Learn to shellac and wax polish, revive brassware and other decorative embellishments. You are invited to bring a piece of your own furniture to work on, subject to submission of photographs in advance of the course to assess its suitability. Cost of materials will be included in the course unless your piece of furniture requires significant replacement components.
