About the Course
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 a 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.
My friend 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.
If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.
What's included in the price?
If you'd just like to learn different techniques I will bring sample boards and a range of finishes. If you would like to get straight on and paint your own furniture I will bring the paint and wax and all brushes. Please make me aware of your desired outcome from the day so I know what I need to bring. I can travel to you or you can come to my home and we can eat home made cakes with our tea 😉.
All of the paint and wax we use on the day is included.
Please fell free to give me a call any time.
Dates are flexible.
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.
