Learn how to give furniture a spring makeover at crafty workshops

Posted by Cato Cooper on

If you would like to learn how you can give your furniture a spring makeover, then sign up to our chalk painting workshops.


Our co-owner and paint expert Cato Cooper will be hosting ‘an introduction to Chalk Paint’ workshops and will teach you how to use Autentico Chalk Paint and waxes on Tuesday, March 5 from 7.30pm until 9.45pm and on Friday, March 29 from 10am until 12.30pm. 

At this time of year many of us tend to want to re-fresh our homes, maybe redecorate or change up our accessories. A great way of re-inventing any room in the house is to give old furniture a new lease of life by upcycling it and Cato will be teaching you how you can do just that. 

You will learn how to properly paint a piece of furniture from start to finish with useful handouts and tips included. Cato will provide wooden boards with some detailing, so that you can try out the different paints and you will cover distressing techniques, as well as layering. Everyone who goes along will then be able to take their new skills home with them and makeover their furniture. 

Materials such as paints, brushes, boards to paint, waxes, an apron and gloves will be provided in the workshop price as well as refreshments and a picture frame for attendees to paint and take home. 

The workshops are suitable for beginners and will cost £40 per person. Payment is required up-front before the workshop takes place. To secure your space, please call us on 01823 660076. 

This is a great skill to learn and you can really save lots of money by upcycling your old furniture instead of buying brand new.
