Our Furniture Chalk painting workshop on MARCH 3rd 2018 is filling up fast. Please ring up now and book your place on 01845 440668.
The day will be a fun and informative activity with interaction and personal development in furniture decoration.
The full day workshop is run at Thirsk Decorating Centre (opposite Lidl & Tesco) where you’ll learn painting techniques, waxing, distressing, gilding and crackling.
You’ll need 2 small bits of unpainted wooden furniture such as a stool, chair or shelf unit that isn't too intricate. We start exploring the painting techniques by working on boards before moving on to painting your own small bits of furniture.
