Paint Workshops

I  run Decorative Paint Workshops from my home in Framlingham using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, having been trained in various techniques by Annie Sloan herself.  I have been a stockist of this wonderful paint for over four years and sold it in both Carley’s Yard and Carley & Co.

During my Workshops you will learn some great Paint Techniques to use on your own projects at home.

I will provide the paint, brushes and materials, and, as well as INSPIRATION you will take home the sample boards you have worked on during your Workshop.

Dates for my Workshops are fairly flexible so please get in touch if you and a friend or two would like to attend.  Tailor made or solo workshops can also be arranged.  Scroll down to the bottom of this page for the small print.

Techniques One Workshop 10 am – 1 pm £65

An ideal workshop to equip you with the basic skills needed to get started with your first up-cycling project and to learn about Chalk Paint by Annie Sloan. The main techniques covered are:

  • Two colour distressing and more
  • Texturing Chalk Paint ™
  • Cracking Chalk Paint ™

Techniques Two Workshop 10 am – 1 pm £75

For this who already have some experience of Chalk Paint ™ and furniture painting and want to achieve some more advanced finishes. The main techniques covered are:

  • Decoupage
  • Stencilling
  • Transfer Techniques
  • Gilding

BOOKING: Please ring me for a chat or email to book, places cannot be secured until payment is made.

TIMES: Starting at 10 am prompt and we should be finished by 1pm but may run a little over (up to half an hour).

WEAR: Not your best clothes! Comfortable and old enough for it not to be the end of the world if you get paint on them.  I will provide aprons.  (Cuffs and sleeves often get paint on them so be able to push them up).

REFRESHMENTS: Coffee, tea and biscuits will be provided.  I can recommend places to go for lunch in Framlingham after your Workshop

ADDRESS: Once you have confirmed and paid for your booking I will send you details of the Workshop location, which will be held at my house in Framlingham, where there is plenty of parking.  The Workshop is held in relaxed surroundings in my art studio.

CANCELLATIONS:  Please note that I do not refund workshop fees if cancellation is less than 14 days from the date of the Workshop if I cannot fill your place with another person.  If I have to cancel the Workshop I will give you as much notice as possible and offer you future dates otherwise you will be refunded.

TERMS AND CONDITIONS:  I reserve the right to change these details or the Workshop content at any time if it is necessary.

I usually have a maximum of three people on each Workshop.  If you are interested in solo/tailor made workshops please let me know.

Any questions please let me know.

Thanks for your time.
