Somerset brides-to-be can get crafty during a hen party with a difference and learn the basics of chalk painting during our workshops so they can upcycle their own furniture at home.
These days brides-to-be and their hens are looking for something a bit different to a night out on the town and we think our chalk painting workshops are a great idea for crafty brides and their bridesmaids, family and friends.
During our workshops hen parties can learn the basics of using Autentico Chalk Paint and waxes. Our interiors and paint expert, Cato, will teach them how to paint a piece of furniture from start to finish with useful handouts and tips included.
She will provide wooden boards with some detailing, so that attendees can try out the different paints and she will cover distressing techniques, as well as layering. Everyone in the group will be able to compare their works, help each other out and sip on a complimentary glass of fizz to make the occasion extra special.
Everyone who comes along will then be able to take their new skills home with them and go on to makeover and upcycle any old and tired furniture they might have at home.
Materials such as paints, brushes, boards to paint, waxes, an apron and gloves will be provided in the workshop price as well as a picture frame for attendees to paint and take home.
The workshops are suitable for beginners and will cost £40 per person. A maximum of seven people can attend and there will be a discount for groups of five or more. Booking is essential and payment is required up-front before the workshop takes place. To find out more, please call us on 01823 660076.
Our workshops are the perfect opportunity for members of the bridal party to spend some quality time together, learn a new skill and have some fun.
Upcycling is a great skill to learn as you can give a piece of furniture such as a table, sideboard or cabinet a new lease of life. Recycling what you already have is a great way to save money, something newlyweds are keen to do!
