Christmas box / furniture painting workshop - Thursday 6th December
On the Christmas Intro to Furniture Painting workshop you will learn the same furniture prepping and painting techniques as the regular workshop and how to create masking tape designs with me but we'll also have a great range of seasonal colours and all the metallics and a load of festive stencils (including letters).
You can choose to work on a large natural wood box that we will provide and if you wish you can create a unique Christmas box for yourself or someone special!
Or, if you prefer, you can bring a small piece of furniture of your own along to work on and make it over with a design whether that be festive or not - the choice is all yours.
I will show you my 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!
(If you are planning to bring an item to work on please email a photo to me at firstname.lastname@example.org in advance so I 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.
