'Have a Go' at painting furniture the proper way!
This is a very 'hands on' 4 hours suitable for those who are new to painting as well as those who have already tested their skills. You can expect a very relaxed and informal session where you can bring a piece of your own furniture to paint if you wish (you don't have to) and work at your own pace. There are usually between 2 and 4 people on any workshop.
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 to practice including a work board you can take home. If you are painting your own furniture you will probably want to bring your own paint which we can discuss in advance.
