Our furniture painting course is taught by Gillian Blanshard, an expert in the field who has been successfully buying and selling painted furniture for over 30 years. The course is situated within our beautiful barn in Hooton Pagnell.

You will learn how to prepare the furniture, paint using Craig & Rose chalk paint and wax (distressing optional), then take your creation home.

Half way throughout the course, we'll take a 45 minute break to enjoy afternoon tea and take a look around the enchanting 14th century village of Hooton Pagnell.

This course is ideal for beginners, hen parties, birthday celebrations or if you are looking at setting up your own furniture business.

What's included in the price?

We provide all paints, brushes, finishes and even the furniture you'll paint, which will either be a vintage chair, stool, small cupboard, shelving or storage box. You are also welcome to bring your own item if you would prefer (but please no larger than a dining chair).

Did this course the other week. Had a good time and learnt some new techniques which I hope to use on some old furniture I found in the attic.


Brilliant course and great location. We are going to book the advanced techniques course in the summer.


Thank you for a lovely day


Just completed this course at SYIA. Beautiful workshop and the afternoon tea was wonderful. We all had a walk around the village, which was so pretty. Well worth the money and a great day had by all. Thank you


Brilliant course. Gill gave us some great advice on where to start when it comes to selling painted furniture. Looking forward to visiting her shop in Holmfirth.


Excellent tutor learnt lots of new skill, this course is a must do.


Super fun and got an amazing item of furniture to paint. Loved it all. Many thanks to the team for a great day for me and mum.


Just completed a private course with Gill. loads of knowledge given and had a great day.


Great teacher with lots of experience


We did a short course with Gill in her home last year. She was very clear on what techniques we would use and we all had a great time. Very relaxed atmosphere and paint everywhere. We would highly recommend her.


Brilliant tutor. Taught many years ago, and now have my own furniture business in Holmfirth.
