About the Course
In this workshop I will take you through my process of prepping and painting furniture with a contemporary smooth brush-stroke free finish, as well as the techniques for creating striking geometric patterns using masking tape and all my favourite tips for furniture upcycling!
This is a hands on workshop and you can either bring along a small piece of your own furniture to work on or we will provide you with a lovely large wooden box to paint and customise, which is yours to keep afterwards.
(If you are planning to bring an item to work on please email a photo to me at email@example.com in advance so I can have a look and check the prep needed. As a rule of thumb for size you should be able to carry the piece in one hand)
You'll be working with Fusion Mineral Paint, a specialist furniture paint that gives beautiful results and is easy to work with but is non-toxic, lead free, virtually odourless and has no volatile organic compounds (VOC) and contains no ammonia or formaldehyde. You'll get a chance to use some of the 50 different colours as well as 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.
Refreshments will be available during the workshop and 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.
This workshop is for ages 16 and over.
