Beginners Furniture Painting Workshop with Autentico Chalk Paints

Wednesday, September 26th, 2018 |10:00am - 4:00pm | £79.00
Spaces available 1

Tutor: Ann Cope

Spend a day at The Butterfly Art & Craft Studio and learn how to give your furniture a new lease of life using Autentico Chalk paints. Our tutor Ann is Autentico trained and an Autentico stockist who specialises in up-cycling character furniture giving it a professional lovingly restored finish.

You’ll need to bring a small piece of furniture. We recommend no larger than 50cm x 50cm x 50 cm, don’t worry if you haven’t got anything suitable as we have pieces available from £5.00. Wear some old clothes and it may be useful to bring a notepad and pen. Throughout the workshop you’ll be learning skills and techniques on a board and you will then use these on your own piece of furniture to give it a new look and lease of life ready to take home with you. Includes paint and materials to use on your furniture.

  • The origins of Autentico chalk paint
  • How to prepare your piece of furniture
  • Why you don’t need to sand your furniture
