We love what we do here at Emily Charlotte and we like to share our passion for all things creative through our wide range of workshops and classes.


Let your creative juices flow in our charming studio and try your hand at a variety of techniques, such as ceramics, furniture painting, and upholstery, so that you will be able to design, create and transform your own furniture at home.


Whether you’re looking for a new hobby, a fun way to spend an afternoon with friends, or you fancy some quality, therapeutic alone time, our workshop sessions deliver.


Ultimately, you’ll be able to save furniture from the skip by learning how to give it a whole new lease of life.


Our workshops are incredibly popular and usually book up several weeks in advance. Please check the Emily Charlotte Facebook page for updates about future workshops and courses.


We are always open to suggestion, so if there’s a skill or technique you fancy having a go at, please pop in and chat to one of our team and we will assess demand for a workshop in that discipline.
