Hello, we hope you are all well and safe.
We are delighted to announce we are back up and running after the Covid-19 lockdown restrictions and hope you will find our workshops a welcome delight after the very difficult times we have all had.
Come along to one of our 'one' day (10am to 3pm) fun and friendly Furniture Painting Workshops at the gorgeous Grappenhall Heyes Walled Garden, Warrington, Cheshire. Spend the day in the bright and airy schoolroom and glass house whilst looking out onto the spectacular gardens. On sunny days, we can get outside to paint!
Learn the skills to upcycle, refresh, modernise and skilfully transform your tired and dated furniture whilst making some new like minded friends in a relaxed, supportive and beautiful environment.
Leave with the inspiration to continue your skills at home. A small group of no more than 6, therefore you will receive one to one instruction for much of the time.
This is the Level 2 Furniture Painting Workshop, however we do also run Level 1 Furniture Painting Workshops for beginners and Upholstery Workshops. Please see our other 'The Boho Shed' course listings here on the Craft Courses site.
The level 2 workshop is ideal for people who have a basic knowledge of furniture painting, or those who have attended Level 1. You will learn a variety of more advanced techniques including glazing, raised stencilling, image transfer, decoupage, blending and metallic/leaf foiling, creating your own board and small pieces (all provided in the price) which you will be able to take home with you on the day. You wouldn't need to bring any furniture with you for this workshop. Full workshop notes also provided.

I look forward to meeting you and to spending an enjoyable and creative day with you!
