About the Course
Come along to this one day (10am to 3pm) fun and friendly workshop with a friendly bunch at Cuerdon View Cafe, Cuerden Valley Park, Preston, Lancashire and enjoy the famous Cuerden Afternoon Tea in the gorgeous View Cafe looking out over the valley.
Make a lovely Christmas Bottle and Christmas Plaque using a variety of creative painting and craft techniques including decoupage, chalk painting, foiling, crackling, raised stencilling etc. You will be able to experiment with different paints, colours, and brushes. I will guide you through each stage to create a gorgeous Christmas bottle (to be used for a candle holder or to light up) and plaque which you will be able to take home with you.

Joanne (The Boho Shed) :-)
I attended this course sept 14th. Jo is absolutely delightful. She is well informed, patient and encouraging! The choice of kit that she provides is amazing. This is my second course with Jo and I’m looking to attend my third soon! The venue is brilliant and the lunch/afternoon tea is delicious. Highly recommended. Thanks Jo.

Response from The Boho Shed:Thank you so very much Julie. It was a delight to spend the day with such a lovely group of girls. I agree, Cuerden View Cafe is a perfect venue and all credit to the staff and chefs for consistently providing an excellent and friendly service and afternoon tea.
What a fab day, this is my second course with the Boho Shed at Cuerden Valley and already planning my next one. The course was informative and fun in an informal atmosphere. The techniques we have learned and all the expert tips will enable me to use them on projects at home. Thanks again Jo for a lovely day. PS. The afternoon tea (lunch) provided, sets you up for the afternoon.

Response from The Boho Shed:It was great to see you again Jan and I'm delighted you enjoyed your second workshop as much as the first. Credit to Cuerden View Cafe and staff for providing a beautiful environment and delicious afternoon tea! See you again soon. :-)
Myself and my friend have always fancied upcycling furniture but have never been brave enough to have a go so we decided to go on a course to see what it was all about and I'm glad we did.
Jo is a fantastic teacher, very good at explaining things and with it being a maximum of 6 people per class she had time to come round and give advice and help to everyone individually.
The afternoon tea was to die for and it was lovely to sit and each lunch in such beautiful surroundings'
I would recommend any of Jo's courses - we will be attending many more in the coming months
Now - where's my paint...

Response from The Boho Shed:Thank you for a lovely review Debby. I'm so pleased you and Deb enjoyed the workshop. You did such a fantastic job of those chairs, I really loved them. I look forward to seeing you at the level 2 creative workshop in September.
Attended a Furniture Painting workshop with Joanne on Sat 27 July 2019 at Cuerden Valley Park. Lovely relaxed but informative workshop with the delightful Joanne who goes out of her way to help individuals as well as supplying lots of general information on how to get the best effects. The location for this workshop is ideal, comfortable and set in a lovely park and the lunch was plentiful and delicious. All in all a really wonderful way to spend a day. Highly recommended and good value for money too! Thanks Joanne, can't wait for the next one.
