Furniture Painting Workshop (levels 1&2 techniques covered) in Preston, Lancashire



I'd love to welcome you to this one day (10 am to 3 pm) 'Furniture Painting' Workshop in the relaxed and friendly environment at the lovely Tennis Club, Bamber Bridge, Preston. I have recently combined my level 1 & 2 painting workshops into one single day so you will learn many more advanced techniques in addition to the more standard methods during the day, including preparation and protection, painting, distressing, crackling, stencilling, waxing, blending, dry brushing, and glazing (including some invaluable tricks of the trade). During the workshop, you will learn how to upcycle, refresh, modernise and skilfully transform a piece of your tired and dated furniture whilst making some new like-minded friends in a relaxed, supportive and lovely environment. You will bring a piece of furniture that you'd like to transform into a beautiful, elegant piece to match your home décor. I will teach you about different paints from the leading brands on the market, brushes, tools, wood preparation and final protection and you will learn a variety of lovely effects and techniques. You will be able to experiment with different paints, colours, brushes and techniques on a techniques board (provided and which you will be able to take home with you). I will be there every step of the way to guide you through each stage, provide advice and discuss your ideas and favourite styles and technique for a creative result. With such a small group, there is plenty of time for one to one discussion and to answer all of your questions. Full workshop notes on techniques, paints, products and where to buy will be provided. Having taught the workshops for the past five years, my attendees have reported they don't just leave with a new and exciting upcycling skill, but they say they have enjoyed a lovely day out from their busy lives and pressures (with lots of chats, laughs, coffee and cake!), they have met some lovely new friends, and have been inspired to continue painting at home on their own projects. Please see all of the lovely reviews from attendees.
