About the Course

Bring your home project to life in this highly practical and extremely creative hands-on workshop!

Do you dream of having rooms in your home like you’ve seen in magazines but don’t know where to start! Well This is where Ann’s expertise comes in. Having been transforming rooms for years and attending courses at the KLC School of design, Ann knows her stuff.

Who Is Running The Course

Courses are run by Ann our in-house expert and founder who has had years of experience in design, crafts, furniture painting and so much more...

All our courses are run at the “Furniture Painting School Essex” founded by Ann Cope and based in Colchester.
They are run in a fun relaxed but informative atmosphere where you are bound to make friends.

What will you do on the day?

On arrival after introductions and that all-important tea, coffee and biscuits you will have a wide variety of items to choose from.

You will create two mood boards for a room of your choice, your bedroom, family room, dining room or study. Ann will work with you to explain the basic principles for lighting, colour schemes and texture which will allow you to understand how to create the look you’ve been dreaming about for your own home.

You will learn how colours, textures and themes come together to create your desired look, led by Interior design expert Ann Cope, who will share all her secrets with you. You’ll be surprised at just how much you can learn in one day!

To help you to get the most out of the day, please bring along an image of your selected room, images of any pieces of furniture you wish to keep and a piece of fabric that you would like to use in the room. That’ll really help to stay focussed on the look you want to put together.

Feel free to bring along any images that inspire you, whether they’re in magazines, on Pinterest or Houzz. Great designs often start with just one piece or one item and grow from there!

Max of 6 Students per class

You would have had a tremendously enjoyable experience all the way through, Ann is determined that the classes will be lots of fun as well as very fulfilling as you acquire all of the skills, learning and techniques that she has picked up over the years.
