Learn how to take your furniture painting up a notch and create authentic looking works of art!
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 building texture, layering, blending, crackle glaze and dry brushing, stencilling and image transfer.

Please message me if this is required.

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.
