Furniture Painting Workshop

About Furniture Painting Workshop

Do you want to try furniture painting or using chalk paint but are nervous about attempting it on your own?

Come along to our half day furniture painting workshop and we’ll guide you through designing, prepping and painting your piece. It's a fun and relaxing afternoon!

We'll show you how to create a smooth and even finish, how to use masking tape to create different design ideas / styles and how to distress a piece for that shabby chic look. You will also learn how to make your own chalk paint and how to finish and protect your piece with wax.

*** Please note - advanced booking required to secure your place -
here ***

You should bring a small item of wooden furniture to paint such as a small side table, coffee table, magazine rack, dining chair, small cabinet or a stool. Alternatively, we can supply you with a piece of furniture for £20. Just select this option when booking and let us know what type of furniture you would like us to provide.

Following the workshop, you’ll be fully equipped with the skills and knowledge needed to confidently use the paints and waxes on your own. You’ll be given one small pot of chalk paint that you’ve mixed and instructions to take home with you.

Light refreshments will be provided.

Spaces are limited and advance booking is essential to secure your place. Tickets are £65.








While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Furniture Painting Workshop are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
