If you’re starting to feel the stress of the run up to Christmas, our workshops are the perfect way to take some time out and focus your mind elsewhere.
We’ll be hosting chalk paint workshops on Thursday, November 9 and Wednesday, November 22 from 7.30pm until 9.30pm where you can learn the basics of using Autentico Chalk Paint and waxes. I will teach you how to paint a piece of furniture from start to finish with useful handouts and tips included.
I will also provide wooden boards with some detailing, so you can try out the different paints and we will cover distressing techniques, as well as layering. You will be able to take your new skills home with you and makeover your own furniture 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 refreshments and a picture frame for you to paint and take home.
Naomi Stannard, who owns The Crafty Shepherd shop, will be hosting needle felting workshops on Thursday, November 16 and Thursday, December 7 from 6.30pm until 9.30pm. During these workshops you will be able to learn how to create a beautiful 3D creation using fibres and wools from Naomi’s own herds of rare breed sheep and Alpacas.
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.
