Painted Country Workshops
Since 2008, we have been developing and running our own workshops promoting the use of Annie Sloan’s wonderful Chalk Paint™ and waxes. We feel that we are well-placed to give our customers exactly what they are looking for when they join us in our studio for one of our workshops. Our aim is to give clear instruction, answer questions and install confidence in the use of the products all in the context of having a relaxed and enjoyable time with us. Painted Country workshops offer so much more………

Other providers often cash-in and split this workshop into 2 separate sessions so our ‘Getting Started’ morning offers amazing value! We show you all the basic techniques you need to get going in a relaxed, fun 3 hour workshop. Ask questions and experience using Annie Sloan products on a sample board which is yours to keep. This will prepare you for future projects and our other workshops. All materials and refreshments included.
Some of the techniques covered:- 2-colour distressing, textured paint, decoupage & craquelure – plus how to finish with waxes. Why do all this in 2 workshops when it can be done in one in our relaxed informal studio….
10.00am till 2pm
‘Washes and Waxes’ …..
10am till 1pm approx.
Recommended especially (but not necessarily!) for those who already have some knowledge of the ‘distressed’ finish, this workshop will enable you to further develop your skills in creating aged, patinated surfaces on furniture and walls -the kind of look you will often see in our shop. Working on sample boards, we will show you how to create a ‘faux’ wallpaper effect, how to use washes of Chalk Paint™ and coloured waxes to ‘knock back’ and alter a painted surface. These are just some of the techniques you will practise and be able to include in your ‘repertoire’ – all of which you will produce on sample boards to take away and inspire you for future projects. All materials and refreshments included.
‘Decorate a tray’
10am till midday
