About the Course

This is the first of two Annie Sloan workshops. Our tutor, Lucy, has been trained by Annie Sloan herself and has been running these workshops since February 2012.

The workshop is held in our light and airy first floor workshop at our shop in Handbridge, just a short walk from Chester City Centre. Lucy's friendly and enthusiastic teaching style encourages interaction and follows a motto of 'no question is a daft question.

You will cover a comprehensive introduction to Annie Sloan herself and her fabulous Chalk Paint™ and its many uses.

There are 4 furniture painting techniques that you will be taught on this workshop:
* two colour distressing
* creating a crackled/textured finish and the uses of coloured waxes including dark, white and black
* achieving a smooth finish
* creating a wash with the paint

The workshop is based on a wooden sample board that you will be able to take home with you.
This workshop is the first of two Official Annie Sloan workshops - both are regularly offered at The Palace Boutique. Dates for all our workshops can be found on our website:
