About the Course

CV Studio offers beginners and advanced painting technique workshops, as well as stencilling, decoupage, image transfer and craquelure. It now also offers a contemporary upholstery chair makeover w/e, and a Footstool making course.

NB. All our courses will use Frenchic® eco-friendly chalk paint, and as an official stockist, we can offer the range for purchase at workshops. Card facilities are available.

For you if;
* You've never used a chalk paint before
* You're a novice painter & used another brand
* You prefer 'hands on' learning

The workshop covers;
* An introduction to the full Frenchic® Furniture Paint range, covering the 4 paint ranges, sealers - 4 waxes and Finishing Coat - and brushes. Brush care. Easy Crackle and the 5 metallic mineral powders of FrenSheen.
* A demonstration on how to to get your item ready to paint, basic brush technique, paint application and sealing (if your choice requires it) packed with ninja tricks to help you get the best finish possible!
* Preparing samples of paint, sealing (wax and varnish) one colour distressing and brush technique
* Full support from and experienced painter as you work on your piece.

Let me help you to unlock your inspiration and support you as you gain confidence to transform your own piece of furniture!!

You only need bring a small item that you're able to carry, such as a small side table or bedside table to paint. I do not recommend chairs, due to the frustration of spindle painting!
