The first section of the workshop will be a step by step instruction on a variety of techniques incl. prep, painting, crackling, dry brushing, distressing, two colour, stencilling and finishing when you will be able to experiment with colours, brushes and techniques and ask as many questions as you would like. Full workshop notes also provided.

If you have a small piece of furniture you've had lying around for far too long which you'd like to transform into a beautiful, elegant piece, then bring it along and try out your new learned skills during the second part of the course. I will be there all the way to provide advice and ideas for a creative result. I will be there all the way to provide advice and ideas for a creative result.
