Now you’ve painted your piece of furniture it’s time to take it to the next level and add some personal touches and extra finishes with our Furniture Customisation Workshops. These could be by adding Stencils, WoodUbend, PolyOnlay, Pigments, Waxes, Decoupage or even Rub on transfers. There are many ways you can pimp your piece to make it stand out.

We run the following workshops to help you on your creative journey.

All furniture customisation workshops are held in our Paint and Create Studio which is an enclosed space and can take up to 6 people on each workshop. It’s a great space for group bookings if a group of friends want to come and learn together.

We keep groups small and friendly so that we all learn together and this also makes for a fun, interesting and productive time together with lots of laughter.

We use a range of paint brands that we stock in our furniture customisation workshops. If you would like one of our brands used on the day please let us know in advance.

Tea, coffee, water, soft drinks and cake/biscuits are provided on all our workshops. Please advise of any dietary requirements when booking

We do recommend you wear old clothes as these are practical workshops and you could get messy. We do provide aprons to wear on the day.

Everyone attending our workshops gets 10% off any purchases made in store on the day

Workshops

Stencils (3 Hour Workshop) £65 Per Person (Max 6 people)

Stencils can be applied to pretty much anything. All it takes is a little planning, patience and your imagination. Stencils are slowly built up to create the effect. Less is definitely more when it comes to creating the perfect stencil with paint.

Raised stencils really are a thing. Great if you want to create something that stands out or with texture. We have many great products in store to help you on your journey.

The stencil workshop has you working on a choice of pre painted or unfinished items which you get to take home at the end of the workshop. These could be a tray, set of coasters, placemats and much more. As these are all smaller pieces you will gain the confidence to apply larger decoupage onto larger items or furniture

Everything you need is provided on the day. We will discuss what item you will like to work on and any base colours prior to the workshop commencing.

This workshop will teach you how to

  • Plan and placement your design
  • Application techniques
  • Apply your design
  • Distress or blend your design to your chosen piece
  • Use a heat gun to pop Posh Chalk pastes
