ShabbyAnd’s… Beginners Furniture Painting Workshop using Autentico Chalk Paints

If you’ve never experienced using chalk paint or you just want to brush up on your skills then this is the workshop for you……

You’ll be working with Ann our Shabby Queen who runs the workshops in a very informal friendly environment. Ann has a flare for furniture painting, is Autentico trained and has many skills, hints and tips to pass onto you.
