Furniture Painting &
Upcycling Workshops for 2016
New dates for 2016
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.
