Annie Sloan CHALK PAINT Workshops

Stage One Workshop

After this workshop you will be able to tackle your projects with confidence. We cover all the basic techniques you need to get the best out of this amazing paint.

Discuss your projects and colour combinations. Practice two colour effects, texturing and antiquing. Learn how to distress furniture and how to create a modern smooth finish. Use clear and dark wax to both protect your finish when necessary and create your desired look. Experiment with different colours and try mixing the paints. Learn about all the different surfaces you can paint.

Classes for up to 6 people. Everything you will need is provided so just bring yourself for an informative and fun session.

Gather a group of 4 to 6 friends together and have your own class at a mutually convenient time.

Stage Two Workshop

This class is a follow on from Stage One and for those who have already been using Annie Sloan CHALK PAINT and would like to achieve more advanced techniques. You will learn how to decoupage with a difference. Transfer images onto painted surfaces. Have a go at gilding, using brass leaf, for a beautiful 'gold' finish. It is easier than you think. You will also use the two step craquelure set to achieve the finely cracked finish you see on antique furniture and pictures. Be as creative as you wish.

Classes for up to 6 people. Everything you will need is provided so just bring yourself for an informative and fun session.

Learn all the traditional upholstery techniques in our ongoing classes. Each Wednesday the back of No44 is miraculously turned into a workshop where the classes are closely supervised by our expert upholsterer.

Start with a footstool (all materials for this included in the fees) and then progress to your own projects. Learn webbing, springing, rolled edges, stuffing, deep buttoning etc.

Our stock of Emily Bond and Annie Sloan fabrics and many upholstered items provide ideas and inspiration.

The classes run with school terms and cost £45.00 per session. Fees are paid by the half term block.
