Workshops – every Saturday!
Call us to organise the workshop of your choice – see descriptions below…
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………

Workshop 1 – techniques & inspiration
10am till 1pm
Some of the techniques covered:- 2-colour distressing, textured paint, decoupage & craquelure – plus how to finish with waxes.
Workshop 2 – painted furniture
10.00am till 2.30pm
Workshop 3 – advanced techniques
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.
Workshop 4 – paint a side table
10am till 2pm
