Furniture Restoration

Furniture restoration, taught by Ernest Riall, PhD

Do you have a favourite family piece of furniture that is in need of restoration? Do you have a boot sale find that could use a little care to bring out its full value and beauty?
Ernest will help you learn the craft of Furniture Restoration by working on your own pieces. These can be anything from a small decorative item owned by a great grandparent or a museum quality 18th century Chippendale chair.

Ernest will guide you through any repair or restoration from a good clean and wax to replacing detailed marquetry pieces. However, if you want to learn a specific craft skill, Ernest can design a specific series of exercises to achieve your goal.

All tools will be made available without charge some material costs may apply.
