Hi There I'm professionally trained by Annie Sloan in paint techniques using her famous and the original chalk paints. I have over 8 years of experience and featured in Mollie Makes Magazine. I'm also trained in interior design so I can give tips and ideas on your up and coming projects in your home.
You can learn how to use different techniques with chalk paint and how to achieve a professional finish for all of your old furniture.
You will learn techniques such as two colour distressing, ageing, textured, or a crackle look if that's what you think would help you in future painting. You will also learn how to use the clear and dark wax with confidence. Jonathan Marc Mendes has also taught me his famous Painted Grandeur technique and I have completed his Modern Industrial Rust Course.
This is a tailor made course to give you confidence in painting your own furniture in your style.
Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 8 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
All of your materials are included. Just bring along a small piece of furniture.
I provide a light lunch and snacks, possibly homemade cake too.
The workshop can be tailor made to suit you and what you’d most like to learn. The day is totally laid back and suitable for total beginners and those who would like to learn a more professional finish.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
6 hours (flexible times to suit)

What a super course and lovely tutor! Three of us attended the day's course and learnt so much about chalk painting. We were able to ask Michelle lots of questions and she made the day fun and informative. Highly recommend this course and Michelle, she is very knowledgeable. We each came away with a finished piece of furniture and felt a real sense of achievement.
Lovely day, enjoyed meeting Michelle and learning all her idea. Would definitely recommend it to friends.
Had a brilliant day with Michelle and was soo knowledgeable of the Annie Sloan range... her encouragement has made me a lot more confident to do this alone.
Just had a one to one Painting day with Michelle, I have to say it was brilliant. It gave me confidence to paint my own furniture. We managed to paint four of my own peices that have been hanging around in the house for ages. Im so happy with them. I would totally recommend a full day.
Had a brilliant time. The day taught me all I needed to get in and start my own projects. Place is lovely and lunch was great too.
