I really enjoyed this course. Michelle is really friendly and explains all the techniques really well. As it is a one to one course I was able to get an overview of all the different techniques and then focus on the one I wanted to use on my piece of furniture. I’m looking forward to using what I’ve learnt. Thank you Michelle for a lovely day and fabulous coffee! Highly recommended.
I really enjoyed the day and learned a lot. An excellent day's work.

A totally fascinating course - I came away with so many ideas I don't know where to start.....!! I learned all about mixing different paints, waxing, finishing, decorating, decoupage, stencils and making my own chalk paint from practically any left-over paint I might have - and much, much more. So much information was crammed into the day and gave me a whole new perspective on just how varied and interesting "painting" can be. Extremely interesting, a whole lot of fun and highly recommended.
