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

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

The leaners 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.
