Another new thing is our sparkly new studio, completely designed to host our furniture painting workshops and wallpapering workshops. My dad, Mick, is a talent decorator and will be leading the courses, which is good news for our attendees, as he has over 40 years experience so when it comes to painting and distressing furniture he can create and teach looks many of the other courses cant offer as they don't know how to do it!
Our furniture painting courses will show you how you can create the perfect shabby chic look with any type of paint, not just chalk paint but any old paint you have lying in the garage! When you know how you can turn any piece of old furniture to look like something Laura Ashley would be proud of for a fraction of the cost!!
Our next course is running 12th June and we are located just 5 minutes off the M42 Junction 11 Leicestershire so we are super easy to find, even in our rural location! £85.00 for a full day learning with all materials and course notes, lunch and yummy afternoon tea. Just bring a piece of furniture you want to relove!!
If you are a budding diy expert or a interiors newbie we also offer wallpaper hanging workshops, Mick, my dad, is the best at papering, you can never see a join in his wallpaper! So with small classes of just 3 people he can give you all his expertise to help you learn his tricks of the trade. These classes are running from 19th June throughout the summer, £150.00 a day including all the materials, lunch and full course notes, just bring your enthusiasm!
