Our Paint Workshops will now be held in our shop at 2 Victoria Road, Deal CT14 7AP. 


Enjoy a morning or evening of creativity and inspiration.




Learn how to transform your furniture step by step using the internationally famous Chalk Paint™ decorative paints by Annie Sloan.


There’s no need for preparation, sanding, priming or undercoating; this paint can be applied on almost any surface. It’s magic!



An Introduction to the Annie Sloan Method


In this workshop, you will learn the basic skills necessary to achieve a range of finishes and have the opportunity to find out exactly how to get the most out of this fabulous paint. You will leave with the confidence to get started with your first projects. This session is designed to bring out the creative side of you, whether you are new to painted furniture or have already had some experience.


Course fees are £65.00 and include all materials and light refreshments. We start at 9.15am and finish at approximately 12.30pm.



Further Techniques Course


This is for those who want to experiment even further and develop their own creativity.

We cover gilding with leaf and Annie's new gilding waxes, further paint techniques and decoupage.


Course fees are £65.00 and include all materials and light  refreshments.  We will also be adding the occasional evening course (6pm-9pm) for those who have difficulty attending during the day.
