With our very 1st ‘Waxing & Wine-ing Workshop filled in no time at all.. it seemed the ever-popular tapas boards were the perfect element to create a workshop around.   Here was something that everyone would be happy to work on & to take home.


  In the showroom we loaded up two big old antiques tables with bowls of wax, true workshop essentials such as sandpaper, steel wool, gloves & collection of small antique pieces to practice on the scene was set…

In the ‘spirit’ of a Waxing & Wine-ing workshop we began with a glass or two of bubbles and some delicious goodies from Simmone Logue – then it was time to put these ladies to work..

We sanded, we shellacked and finally got to the waxing stage all the while offering hands on advice and a few secret tips & tricks we had from our many years spent restoring antiques.
