Blackpool and Fylde College Community Programme run a Furniture Painting Course in a building owned by ReFurb adjacent to their main premises.

The Furniture Painting Course course teaches various decorative effects and learners work on redecorating certain pieces of furniture. Paint and furniture are supplied by Refurb and the class includes learners with additional needs, some of who have attended the course for consecutive years.

The learners thoroughly enjoy finding out about various techniques and renovating pieces of old furniture, which are either sold in the Refurb store or proudly kept by the learners as evidence of their hard work.
