A small piece of unpainted furniture – i.e. stool, side table – ideally something you can carry with one hand (due to time constraints we can’t do anything bigger in a day). I do ask that you send a picture of your item along with dimensions to me in advance, so we can ensure it is suitable. Wear old clothes and bring an apron that you don’t mind getting paint on. A notebook and pen. Your own lunch. I will provide drinks and snacks and everything you need to complete your project.
