'Paint-A-Piece' Beginners' Furniture Painting Workshop

'Paint-A-Piece' Beginners' Furniture Painting Workshop


Our 'Paint A Piece' Beginners Furniture Painting One-Day Workshop is a great introduction to painting furniture, with the aim of giving you the experience of completing your own piece of furniture, with the help and guidance you need on hand. 

If you’ve never used furniture paint before, or your experience is limited, this workshop is ideal. Alternatively, if you're anxious about starting a big project, such as a kitchen makeover, and want some reassurance on the process to follow to get a great result, this workshop will be perfect for you.

We’ll cover the basics of project preparation, paint and brush selection, and colour choice, as well as pitfalls to avoid, as you tackle your own project. Our friendly informal setting will give lots of opportunity to ask questions along the way and we build in demo's on other techniques to ensure you leave with inspiration and ideas aplenty for your future projects.

We provide all the products you will need, including a 500ml pot of Fusion™ Mineral Paint to work with, which you can then take home with you at the end of the workshop, so no need to bring anything with you other than the piece you wish to paint.

Please note: 
- your piece of furniture should be no larger than a bed/side cabinet or kitchen chair (if you can't carry it in by yourself it's probably a bit too big!)
- please let us know once you've made a colour selection so we can ensure a 500ml pot in your chosen colour is available for you. If you're unsure then we can discuss on the day - we usually have all colours in stock but we can't guarantee your choice availability if the decision is left until the workshop day. 

A light lunch and tea and refreshments throughout the day are provided - please advise in advance of any special dietary requirements.

Car parking at Coppice Garden Centre is free and there will also be an opportunity to browse around our neighbouring shops and boutiques whilst we wait for your paint to dry!  

You will also be entitled to a 10% discount on any Fusion™ Mineral Paint products purchased on the day of your workshop.

An informal, fun learning and sharing environment is what you'll find at Claire's CraftHouse so this is the perfect course for friends or family looking for a few hours of time out together. If your group is 4-6 people please contact Claire directly and we can arrange a bespoke date for your exclusive workshop.
