Free Excellence in Finishing Courses


The last time Hampshire Sheen developer Martin presented an Excellence in Finishing Course was during the Covid lockdown in mid 2020 after the in-person courses had to be cancelled. A newly revised and improved course is back for two free online presentations this October.

These two Zoom events will be the most comprehensive Hampshire Sheen finishing courses Martin has ever presented. There will be a lot more detail on each of the products used than before using on screen illustrations and he will share with you my tips and tricks for getting the best of out of the products on different species of wood.

Primarily, Martin will be sharing with you the recommended (and in some cases, advanced) methods of using the core products in the Hampshire Sheen Range: Gloss Finishing Wax, Microcrystalline Wax, Cellulose Sanding Sealer, Embellishing Waxes as well as the Danish Oil and brand new Citrus Burnishing Oil and where and when to use each of them.

We will also look at finishing techniques over the Intrinsic Colour Collection which will also include applying and polishing the Hampshire Sheen lacquers.

By the time the course finishes, you will be equipped with the knowledge to apply the finishes to bring the best out of your turned items, and be in the perfect position to get fanatical about finishing!

Those who stay for the whole course will receive a personal Certificate of Excellence different to the Extraordinary Course on YouTube last year, and different again from the in-person ones from before that!

The are two online courses to choose from that will be hosted in a Zoom meeting:

Saturday 9th October 10am – 2pm (UK);
Tuesday 19th October 6pm – 10pm (UK).

Please allow 4 hours to complete the course and there are a maximum of 500 seats available on each (though it is unlikely to sell out).

If you have any queries about the course, please contact us and I will get back to you as soon as possible. Bookings for the course are being taken at www.msabansmith.com as this site does not have a booking capability.
