Give life to your vintage china in our upcycling class at Heals. First choose a pre-loved plate or teacup from The Indytute’s very special vintage china collection. Each piece has been rooted out by the Indytute china scout, who has scoured garage sales, antique stalls and junk shops to select the ideal pieces to upcycle. The idea of this workshop is to give you plate a new lease of life and turn it into a work of art you might spot in Harvey Nics. These plates make great presents and they also make a shelf very happy
