This popular workshop is a good introduction to Chalk Paint™ for total beginners and for those that have some experience but want to understand further the versatility of Chalk Paint™ and other Annie Sloan products to create different finishes.
In this workshop we demonstrate how to use Chalk Paint™ with lots of practical exercises that cover each stage of all of the basic techniques. We concentrate on the versatility of Chalk Paint™ and how you can apply it in different ways to create various finishes and effects. We work on a sample board to explore and practise the signature Annie Sloan core techniques that you can then use at home in your own time when up-cycling and transforming your own furniture or accessories. In addition we ask you to bring in a small photo frame that you don’t mind practicing on and transforming. The workshop includes demonstrations, practical training, lots of guidance on techniques and is packed full of handy tips. At the end of the workshop you are able to take home your own sample board as a visual reminder of the techniques covered, along with your transformed frame.
