Annie Sloan – Colour Your Home

“A fabulous day! I learn’t so much about colour and how it can work so effortlessly within the home. Painting the room sets was also very helpful. Thank you for such an inspiring day.” – J Griffiths

This brand new course is a full day of colour, interior design and mood-boarding. The aim of the course is to dispel the fear of using colour and design within the home, to enable you to create a bespoke colour-scheme for a room or interior space you have in mind.

The day begins by looking at the science of colour, learning how to mix it, how the traditional colour wheel works, and how to apply it to your home. We then look at interior design styles and influences, and give guidance on how to refine your own personal style. The afternoon is then spent painting room sets, using knowledge acquired in the morning, adding in blending fabrics, and culminating in the preparation of a colour scheme of your own.

£155.00 including all materials and a sumptuous farmhouse lunch and refreshments.

Annie Sloan – How to Paint Furniture

A full day of learning about chalk paint, colour and technique and how to paint your furniture to professional standards.

We teach you the magic of chalk paint: how it can be finished with a range of techniques from gilding and crackle-glazing, decoupage and stencilling. We show you how to layer colours for a Scandinavian effect, and how to try different ways of painting to suit your own style: flat-painting for a contemporary finish, or distressing for a classical French look. With lots more besides, this exceptional course gives you the tools and confidence to start your own work, or greatly improve the skills you already have.
