Paint Techniques

Discover how easy it is to put paint onto furniture and create a beautiful, individual masterpiece. We will teach you how to prepare and use various types of paints and finishes, including the very popular chalk paints. We teach 3 techniques: basic painting, two colour shabby chic effect, & crackle effect.

You will be practising on actual pieces of wood, not just on flat boards. This will help you to appreciate how the paint effects differ on different surfaces. So for price conscious and unique restorations, come and join this relaxed class and take home the skills you need to do it yourself. The beauty is, you can’t get it wrong! You will be given a booklet to take home so you can remember the essentials of what you have learnt.

Classes on Saturdays 10am – 1pm – Dates TBC depending on demand £60 per class
