Pay As You Go Furniture Upcycling Studio For Hire

Upcyclers - hire my studio 

Calling all Birmingham and West Midlands based upcycling professionals and furniture artists - whatever title you go by, if you give furniture new leases of life, this is for you. 

I’ve been upcycling furniture for a few years now and I’ve noticed a need in our community that I have a solution for. 

If your upcycling business, however big or small, is home-based, you may find yourself turning down commissioned work for large pieces because you simply do not have the space in your home or your budget to take the work on. 

The solution you need is here. Hire my upcycling workshop in Birmingham on an ad hoc basis. Pay-as-you-go workspace hire allows you to take on larger projects without the expense of a permanent workspace that you may not need full time. It’s cost-effective and low commitment. 

I think one of the most brilliant things about our upcycling community is how collaborative we are, but day-to-day it can be lonely. A change of scenery and a little bit of company can make the days go faster.

 £60 for half day

£100 for a full day 

OR Five day pass £350



- I've booked five days, do I have to use them consecutively? 

No. You can split the days, as long as they're used within three months of booking. We know how commissioning work can go sometimes, so I want to allow for flexibility. 


- What, if any, equipment and tools do I have access to in the studio? 

At this point in time, none of my personal tools are available for use. However, I'm looking to build a library of items especially for visitors in the future.
