About the Course

Done up North's furniture painting workshops take on a Christmas twist!

The first is a Christmas box version of the Intro to Furniture Painting and the second is a wooden Christmas bauble painting workshop.

On the Christmas Intro to Furniture Painting workshop you will learn the same furniture prepping and painting techniques as the regular workshop and how to create masking tape designs with me but we'll also have a great range of seasonal colours and all the metallics and a load of festive stencils (including letters).

You can choose to work on a wooden box we'll provide and, if you wish to, create a unique Christmas box for yourself or someone special.

Or, if you prefer, you can bring a small item of your own furniture along to work on with and make it over with a design whether that be festive or not - the choice is all yours!

On the Christmas bauble painting workshop we'll provide you with all the materials to paint, decoupage or stencil up to 6 wooden cut out bauble shapes to take home with you - and threads ready to hang them up. I will show you how to prep each one ready to work on and how to apply a masking tape design, how to apply decorative paper or how to stencil using one of the fab festive stencils.

On both workshops you'll be working with Fusion Mineral Paint, a specialist furniture paint that gives a beautiful soft matt finish and is so lovely and easy to work with but is hard-wearing and requires no top coat. It is made from natural ingredients so is non-toxic, lead free, virtually odourless and has no volatile organic compounds (VOC) meaning it's kinder to the environment as well as us. Perfect if you are planning to paint something for little ones! You'll get a chance to use some of the 50 different colours as well as all of the metallics in their range.

No experience is necessary and all abilities are welcome. Wearing clothes suitable for painting is a good idea or bring an apron. All other materials will be supplied.

There will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions and get advice for your projects while you are painting too. We'll also give you a furniture painting guide and tip cards to take home with you on the Intro to Furniture Painting workshop.

Refreshments will be available during the workshop - including mince pies and mulled wine to get everyone in the festive spirit!

We can also accommodate workshops for groups or parties such as birthdays, hen parties, etc. These can be from 2 hours to a full day and we can also combine this with an Afternoon Tea provided by the Sunshine Bakery in Leeds. Please call us to discuss!
