What’s involved and how does it work:

Workshops are run for six hours between 10am - 4pm with a maximum of six people, its a great way to make new friends and learn something new. Bespoke party bookings on request.

Throughout the workshop you’ll be learning skills and techniques on a board which you can then use on your own piece of furniture to give it a new look and lease of life.

Watching paint dry…

Autentico chalk paint dries so quickly but while it is Caroline will be showing you how to use different paint and finishing techniques and of course you’ll need time for those sticky cakes, biscuits, tea, coffee and a light lunch!

What we will cover:
