Upholstery Course: 20th October 2009 Read More Here.

Fancy trying something new?,
Upholstery Course in Newcastle Upon Tyne Only £88.
Refunk Your Junk & Recycle Your Furniture have been pushing Newcastle City Learning to put on another Upholstery course. and guess what they are considering it: All we need now are the bums on seats.. If we have enough people attending then the course will go ahead:

Why not start a part time Upholstery course and refunk all of those tired old chairs in your house.

Gosforth High school are looking at running a 1 evening a week course every Tuesday from the 20th October 2009 through until 15th December 2009.

Sadly there seems to be no goverment funding for the course available so the course has to run on full price without any discounts. BUT still for the full course it is only a reasonable £88.

If your interested and possibly want to join some of the Refunk Your Junk designers on the course, then get in touch with Newcastle City Learning: 0191 255 9101 to either book yourself a place or find out more info.

Hope to see some of you there.

Press release - Crack Magazine

We made our way to the pages of the CRACK magazine... CRACK knows, where to go, what to see, where to eat - best places around Newcastle!!! Check new September issue or visit their website and... you will never spend your free time bored at home.

Here is what CRACK wrote about us:

I love happy endings and Refunk Your Junk is full of happy endings for old, unloved furniture. This smart green initiative takes donations of household items and then they are transformed by craftspeople and artists into glamorous objects of desire. Their view is that second hand shops are not always inspiring places to find furniture and that even if you do find something it may need a revamp and not everyone has a time, space r inclination to do that. So they collect goodsfree of charge and give it to the designers to do their magic. Then faster than you can say hey presto, that old dull chair is turned from frump to fabulous. Now, that is what I call a very happy ending. SM
