About the Course
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.
If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above or telephone us. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.
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).
Great course, lot's of laughs and came home with a beautiful piece of furniture.

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.

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.
