About Posh Chalk Interiors
What We Do
Posh Chalk Interiors provides a path to sustainability, accessible to all who seek it – through the power of upcycling; offering furniture restoration workshops, and classes in upholstery, spray painting, candle making, basic joinery – as well as providing advice on how to sell one’s pieces post-restoration.
But not only does Posh Chalk Interiors’ upcycling deliver great sustainability for a world which so desperately needs it, it also has a myriad of incredible therapeutic benefits. As with all mindful practices, the single-minded focus and presence required to upcycle furniture causes stress to dissolve. There is no longer room to think about the regrets of the past or the worries of the future; instead, there is just the here and now. There are a great many studies touting the efficacy of mindfulness and many more people that sing its praises.
Furthermore, it pulls you out of virtual reality and brings you back into what is tangible and concrete – what truly matters. And it is here that genuine human connections are made.
SollyJo, a creative mogul, is CEO of WoodUbend and founder of Posh Chalk Interiors. Empowering woman to make a profession from what often starts as an interest, with her art academy.
SollyJo is a master of blending and using paint with heavily textured surfaces, but unlike most, her signature is that her versatility and wide range of abilities know no bounds. Having worked alongside household names such as Chris Leloudis, she has made a firm mark in a trade she loves and is at the heart of all her creations.
Her passion for art and creative flair started long before Posh Chalk was born, restoring heritage buildings, fashion design and reconditioning furnishings which led her to develop WoodUbend, the industry’s first heat bendable decorative wood mouldings. The business presently distributes to more than 96 stockists worldwide and with over 3,000 highly defined, designs, in just 11 months from the launch of the product.
Furthermore, she has affiliations with several big names in the industry, regularly showcasing her work through live stream videos, to aid crafters, upcylcers and interior designers with how to use and where to find the best products for their projects.
So, if you have any stress or worry in your life, taking a workshop with Posh Chalk may be exactly what you need. Or, if you’re suffering from chronic pain, a disability, or mobility issues, their workshops are a great distraction from the pain and physical limitations.
Headquartered in a breath-taking restored mill, Posh Chalk has its ethos built into every wall. A fitting backdrop to begin your journey into sustainability through upcycling. And with a wide range of workshops – from beginners to master classes – there is something for every skill level.
