FABRIC PAINTING & DESIGN WORKSHOP

$99 per student, $184 for 2 student buddies

Why spend hundreds to re-upholster that chair if you can achieve an incredible new look – that feels and wears beautifully – for pennies on the dollar? Want the tricks to getting crisp, clear images on fabric?

Ever tried shibori ? This fun filled head turning workshop answers all this plus more.

You will learn how to use Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® to paint versus reupholstering your chair! You will learn how paint is best applied and then sanded and waxed for that velvety smooth touch, how to properly stencil onto fabrics, how to blockprint onto fabrics, techniques to achieve a unique shibori design, and how to transform old or new lampshades into works of art!

In our last hour, you will be able to do a small project piece on your own using one of the techniques learned. You will select from either a table runner or pillow cover and create your own new masterpiece!

All supplies – including project pieces – included.

You will leave with a color card, all of your sample fabrics with instructions, your project piece, and the confidence and inspiration you need to do some amazing transformations!

10% discounts on all DIY Supplies available on day of the workshop. Maximum of 8 students.

BRING YOUR OWN PIECE WORKSHOP 

$89 per student, $165 for 2 student buddies

Afraid or nervous to start? Only have 1 piece you want to do NOW? Want to do a piece but not bother with any mess or supplies? Then this is the workshop for you!

We will share our experience, knowledge and SUPPLIES with you! Bring in your own piece to be transformed. It MUST be small enough for you to bring in on your own. Think small occasional table, ugly brass lamp, signage or small side table. It needs to be proper size so you will be able to complete your project in the time allotted for in this workshop.

We will start with an introduction to the Annie Sloan Methods and explore numerous sample boards with you. Once you determine what finish you would like to have, we will set you up with all the paint and supplies you need. We will be right around to offer guidance, support and suggestions (if desired!).

You will leave with your piece ready to be placed into its new spot your home that day! Maximum 4 students per session.
