10.00am to 4.00pm
In this fun informal workshop you can let your creative side go wild and learn how to create that perfect shabby chic look from 40 years experience! Set in the Leicestershire countryside our workshop takes place in our painting workshop in Norton Juxta Twycross. You will be greeted by Mick and Laura and will enjoy tea and biscuits on arrival.
Our workshop is for all abilities and as numbers are limited to 4 people, we can give you one to one advice throughout the day.
The workshop begins with a discussion on paint types and essentials tools for upcycling furniture. Then once you have learnt the basics its time to put things into practice!
You will be taught how to professionally prepare furniture and how to correctly apply a range of different techniques including:
● Mixing paints
● Layering paints
● Dry brushing
● Crackle glazing
● Colour washing
Whilst the furniture dries we take a break for lunch where we will have a homemade buffet served on vintage china in the break out area or outside (weather permitting).
In the afternoon you will continue painting your furniture and applying your chosen techniques with guidance from Mick. Again full course notes are given for future projects at home!
Once you have worked up an appetite afternoon tea is provided!
The price of the class includes all the materials you need on the day, delicious drinks and homemade treats. You also get a free decorative heart to take away with you as inspiration for your first project!
Please bring along a piece of furniture you would like to paint for example, a chair or small table. If you are bringing items like a picture frame or tray please bring a couple of items to make the most of the workshop!
