These workshops are designed for anyone with an interest in learning how to create beautiful and professional looking pieces of hand painted furniture. Whether you are wanting to build upon the skills you have already developed, or you are just starting out, our workshops will fuel your imagination and be an invaluable source of inspiration.
We encourage you to bring along a small item, for example, a side table, a small wooden chair or maybe a jewellery box to the workshops. If you already have an idea of the look and colour for your piece of furniture then Simon can offer help and guidance for you to create the perfect finish. Or, if you prefer, he can advise on a number of different looks for you to choose from. The day workshops will start at 10.00 and we aim to finish around 3.00pm.
If you will be redeeming a CraftCourses gift voucher on this course, the voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.
What's included in the price?
Practice boards will be available for you to try out some of the professional techniques used in furniture painting, such as ageing & patina effects, craquelure, stencilling, chalk paint & wax finishes. Brushes and equipment will also be made available as well as all the paints and finishes you might need for the day. You will be given full instruction on the correct use of all these items.
All students are asked to bring an apron or wear suitable clothing. Tea, coffee and light refreshments will be available throughout the day. Unfortunately we will not be able to cater for any special dietary requirements or allergies, so you are asked to please bring a packed lunch.
Absolutely brilliant day, learned so much from Simon, different wood grains using different mediums. A lovely crowd of fellow 'students' laughed and had fun helped down with copious cups of coffee and delicious cake made by Simon's wife. Can't wait to do the marbling course. Highly recommended.
South Coast Studio:
Many thanks for the kind words Fanny, it was lovely to meet you on Saturday, I'm glad that you had a good day and picked up some new skills along the way. Everyone on the course did exceptionally well and the finished results looked very professional. Looking forward to seeing you on the One Day Marbling course coming up soon.
Best Wishes Simon
