This evening course teaches you how to up-cycle furniture, learning skills such as colour mixing, painting techniques and finishes. Discover how you can use natural ethical paints, finest earth pigments, accent colours and water-based waxes to add a whole new layer of creativity to repurposing and up-cycling. Introducing you to colour trends and how to mix your own unique natural colours, you will cover basic painting techniques and use of paint, pigments and wax to create unique effects. Techniques include highlighting, stenciling, fabric coverings, distressing and aging.
Materials are provided, as well as a range of furniture items to try techniques on, although you are welcome to bring any small projects you would like to work on (stool, bedside table size).
The course is run by Michelle and Karla of Nina’s Chalkpot.
