Come and enjoy a full day learning how to upcycle your furniture like a pro at this beginners workshop.
Kirsten from Mala Interiors will teach you everything you need to know from how to prepare your pieces for painting, including some basic restoration and repair tips, before taking you through a range of paint techniques including layering, blending, colour washing and dry brushing. Kirsten will then teach you how distress and embellish your pieces and use different coloured waxes to complete the look.
You will learn how to do all these things...
* basic repairs and restoration
* preparing your piece for painting
* create different styles using a variety of paint techniques
* use Frenchic Frensheen and Frenshimmers to gild and highlight detail
* wet/dry distressing
* create depth, texture and age using different wax finishes
Materials required: Please bring along a mid-sized piece of furniture to work on such as a bedside table, console table, kitchen chair or small coffee table. Bear in mind that you cannot park on the High Street so please bring something you can easily carry. A piece of furniture can be provided for you for an additional charge. Please message ahead if this is required.
Materials Included: Access to a collection of Frenchic Furniture Paints and accessories, use of Frenchic brushes, a light lunch and as much tea and cake as you can manage!
Classes are small and limited to a maximum of 8 people, so you get the personal tuition you need to help you with your project.

We try our best to price our workshops as fairly as possible and offer good value for money. We therefore have to have a clear cancellation policy to ensure that we cover our costs and the ongoing viability of the workshop. Unfortunately we are unable to make exceptions to this policy. This is to be fair to all of our customers and to allow us to keep our class sizes small with lots of personal attention.
We urge you to carefully check your diary to ensure that you are available to attend any workshops or events you are booking with us. Please refer to our WORKSHOP BOOKING & CANCELLATION POLICY
for terms and conditions. We hope you understand and thank you for your support.
