Learn to Paint Furniture


Introduction to Painting Furniture and Simple Decoupage

Led by Jan @ Willow Vintage Home And Gifts


Spend a few hours being creative and having fun in our half-day workshop!


Learn about the different ways to paint furniture, or enhance your existing skills. This is a very 'hands on' 3 hours suitable for those who are new to painting and decoupage as well as those who have already tested their skills.


Our workshop includes:

- Preparing your furniture

- Different types of paint and how to use them

- How to achieve different finishes, eg shabby chic and using waxes

- How to do simple decoupage on furniture


We provide everything you need including a work board you can take home. You don't need to bring your own furniture on this introductory course, but you're welcome to bring a photo so we advise on the best way to transform it using the techniques you learn here.


Why learn with Willow?

We don't sell paint and that makes us unique. It means we're not trying to sell you anything. This introductory course is based on Jan's years of experience, including a few cheeky tips!


Cost £55 for 3 hour session. Courses usually run 10am to 1pm.


Workshop Dates 2020: To be Announced
