Creative and Art Events


Laura Murphy has organised a programme of upcycling workshops at Sun Pier House, Chatham.


Saturday 22nd February, 10am – 3pm, £25 per person

Come along for a fun and friendly workshop to ‘pimp your crap!’ Do you have items at home that you love but need updating? Want to make them into something new and more useable? Then bring them along and give them a makeover! Learn upcycling skills and have something pretty to take home.

Chairs, small tables, lampshades, bric-a-brac, any random bits and bobs…bring it along. The more crap the better!



Saturday 22nd March, 10am – 3pm, £25 per person

Come for a fun and educational day to learn about upcycling… Learn how to paint furniture (properly- no drips or dribbles!). We will have some items for you to upcycle or you can bring something to work on. Get expert advice on how to finish your pieces, where to find items to upcycle, and get inspired and get confident to make items for your home!



Saturday 26th April, 10am – 3pm,

£25 per person if you bring your own chair (£30 if not)

A fun day, where everyone will upcycle a chair to take home. Learn to paint furniture properly and get a professional and durable finish. We’ll have a range of fabrics for you to pick from for new seat pads, or if you have something in mind already bring it along.

Go home with an individual & funky chair… just for you!



Saturday 24th May, 10am – 3pm, £40 per person

Always wanted to use Annie Sloan paints? Want to know what the fuss is all about? Chalk paint is a versatile paint that can be used on most materials (wood, glass, matte plastic) without any primer or prepping. If you’re into shabby chic then this is the one for you! Come and experiment with Annie Sloan & Autentico and learn how to make your own chalk paint for a fraction of the cost! Bring any furniture you want to work on or we will have some items for you to purchase on the day!


Booking is essential!
