About the Course
September and November dates: The Box Workshop
On the Box 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.
October and December - The Wall Hanging workshop
On the Wall hanging workshop I'll show you how to create a striking Navajo/Art Deco-inspired geometric design and you can pick the colours you love to go with your own decor instead or you can if have a specific design in mind then you can create something unique with support from me as required.
On both workshops 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. These classes are perfect if you feel you are not very artistic or creative as geometric tape designs are very rewarding and enjoyable for all and really striking designs can be created with no measuring or cutting needed.
This workshop is for ages 16 and over.
