I attended the beginners workshop at Vintage Attic Sevenoaks as I have lots of furniture to paint. Elaine was lovely and the workshop was great as it gave me the confidence I needed to start. The day was really informative and also great fun. There was a mix of ladies and men. I have also attended a paint your own piece and I painted a lovely bedside cabinet which I purchased from the Vintage Attic shop. I enjoyed it so much I am on the waiting list for a more advanced class. I can thoroughly recommend.
