Upcycled Furniture Workshops
Hairpin Bench Workshop and Lampshade making workshop



I have been developing a new workshop to Upskill from the Furniture Techniques Workshop! This will be exclusive to everyone who has attended the Furniture Techniques Workshop and will only be available to those who have previously attended! Date for this workshop is August 27th and  SEPT 3rd!

Upcycle Pro

Time: 10am-5.30pm





The workshops will be delivered by Joanne Condon of Kyle Lane, a qualified teacher, and artist to give you the best tips and tricks she uses in upcycling furniture in her business every day for more than 5 years! Joanne’s work has been featured on RTE one’s NAationwide and has appeared as the Upcycling and DIY expert for the Today Show on RTE1 and has been featured in House and Home Magazine,  Irish Country and Living Magazine, The Sunday Buisness Post, The Irish Examiner and was embassador for the Greenerhome Hints guide for The Southern Waste Region.


Brand New Workshop! Floor lamps are the perfect addition to any room, making cosy instantly! Floor Lamps are so hard to find, let alone one that you like the colour and the shade matches your decor perfectly. Well, that’s all about to change! Creating your own,  in whatever colour you like and whatever shade you like! WOOO HOOOO. This workshop allows you to create your own 40cm lampshade from a range of fabrics! The floor lamp is a timber stand that is 123cm in height (without shade) , the lampstand also comes with an inline foot switch. The colour is all up to you, but Joanne Condon will be there to guide you through colour options and fabric choices (that’s her favourite part)

What’s included

  • The basics of painting, how to prep, and paint any timber surface.
  • Making a 40cm lampshade, choosing from a range of fabrics.
  • Afternoon tea, complete with sandwiches and cupcakes to feast on!

So you enter our workshop empty handed and leave with a bespoke floor lamp in your own style!

Date: August 20th
