Day workshops use environmentally-friendly and very versatile chalk paints and other lovely materials!
In this fun, relaxing and sociable workshop you will learn how to use chalk paints to transform your furniture.  No artistic expertise or experience is necessary and all course materials are included. 
Topics covered include how to achieve the distressed or "shabby chic" look, how to give furniture a crackle effect, how to stencil, decoupage and gild furniture.  We will also look at how best to paint wicker and how to give wood a "wash" effect.  There will also be time to discuss where to source unique pieces for your home and what products are available to achieve the effects you will learn.
Tea and homemade cakes are served to you on beautiful vintage china and the emphasis is on enjoyment!


For future dates contact Rachel or watch this space.
The course price is 85 or 80 each if you book one or more places.
