Come and learn how to paint that unloved item and turn it into something amazing!

Our most popular course on Furniture Painting with Chalk Paint covers preparation, painting and finishing, with an opportunity to find out more about the wonderful products from the Vintro range.

We cover preparation and priming to ensure the best finish; also the techniques of distressing, layering and colour waxing to personalise your work. If time permits, you may also have an opportunity to try embossing or crackle-glazing. 

All tools and materials, except furniture, included. We have a limited palette of our most popular colours available for the workshops. However, you’ll get trade discount on the day if you want a specific colour.

Bring along an item of furniture you wish to paint – eg. a stool, chair, bedside cabinet, side table or toy box: no pianos or wardrobes please!  But don’t worry if you haven’t got a suitable item – there’s a special discount on project pieces at Decoporium that need no preparation!

You’ll have more chance of completing your project on the day if you give your item a light sanding to key/prepare it beforehand if it’s waxed, varnished, painted or has a shiny or glossy surface.

We recommend you give wood-stained items a stain-blocking undercoat, though you can do this on the day if you prefer. We did say we do it properly! 😉

Wear something you don’t mind getting paint on!

There’s a special Deco-Discount at the adjacent The Café & Bistro on the day.
