Done up North Christmas box / furniture painting workshop – Saturday 8th December
8th December 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm| £49
The Introduction to furniture painting evening workshop on Saturday 8th December takes on a Christmas twist!
You will still learn the same furniture painting techniques and how to create masking tape designs along with Nicky but we’ll also have a great range of seasonal colours and all the metallics and a load of festive stencils (including letters) so if you wish you can create a customised wooden Christmas box for yourself or someone special! You might prefer to bring a small item along to decorate with a festive design instead.
She will show you her techniques for painting furniture with a contemporary smooth finish and then show you the techniques for stencilling and creating masking tape designs and then you can get creative!
This is a hands on workshop and you can either bring along a small piece of your own furniture to work on or we will provide you with a lovely large wooden box to paint and customise, which is yours to keep afterwards.
(If you are planning to bring an item to work on please email a photo to firstname.lastname@example.org in advance so she can have a look and check the prep needed. As a rule of thumb for size you should be able to carry the piece in one hand)
You’ll be working with Fusion Mineral Paint, a specialist furniture paint that gives a beautiful soft matt finish and is so lovely and easy to work with but is hard-wearing and requires no top coat. It is made from natural ingredients so is non-toxic, lead free, virtually odourless and has no volatile organic compounds (VOC) meaning it’s kinder to the environment as well as us. Perfect if you are planning to paint something for little ones! You’ll get a chance to use some of the 50 different colours as well as all of the metallics in their range.
No experience is necessary and all abilities are welcome. Wearing clothes suitable for painting is a good idea or bring an apron. All other materials will be supplied.
There will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions and get advice for your projects while you are painting too. We’ll also give you a furniture painting guide and tip cards to take home with you.
Refreshments will be available during the workshop – including mince pies and mulled wine to get everyone in the festive spirit!
This workshop is for ages 16 and over.
