What’s going on this week?
Hello and happy Friday! Here’s another trader news for you, perfect for keeping up with the latest goings on!
It’s only a week to go until our summer tea party on July 7. Are you coming along?
There is so much going on, including special demos, and many of our traders will be in attendance at their units to chat with you all about their products. Find out all the news here.
Workshops with Cato
Our Cato has announced a string of new Chalk Paint workshops. The first one kicks off on July 14 and it’s all about the basic techniques of using Autentico Chalk Paints and waxes.
Cato will teach you how to paint your piece of furniture from start to finish with useful handouts and tips. A wooden board with some detail will be used to try out 20 paint colours and we will cover ‘distressed’ techniques, as well as two-tone-texture painting.
All equipment will be provided during the workshop and you don’t need any experience in painting furniture to attend. A 10% discount on all paint products will be given afterwards too. All chalk paints we offer are water based, free of solvents and other harmful additives (VOC low). Find out more here.
New traders joining the family
In July we’ll be welcoming the lovely Laura Stoddart to The Emporium family. Laura is an illustrator and began her career with a commission from the Royal Mail for the 1996 Christmas stamps. She is the youngest professional artist to have ever designed a set of stamps.
Lisa Mack, Laura’s colleague, will be setting up her unit next month with lots of lovely gifts.
We’ll also have the superb Sam Roe from The Potting Shed joining us and taking up a unit with her gorgeous shabby chic painted furniture and handmade bunting.
