Introduction Paint Course Workshop

We have a mini workshop being held on the 1st July.

Please visit this page to book.....

The level one paint workshop is an introduction to using vintage style chalk paint for updating furniture and other home accessories. It is being held in the Lantern Arts Centre in Worple Road in Raynes Park, lasts 4.5 hours and costs £85. You can secure your spot by paying a deposit now and then the balance on the day.

Students learn about using a chalk based paint & how to use it to get the best long lasting results on their own home projects. You learn about preparation, ageing techniques and finishing using varnish and wax. Our aim is that on completion of the course you will have the confidence to tackle something at home yourself.

We supply all the paints, brushes, cloths, sandpaper etc. You learn the techniques using a sample board, a piece of moulding, a picture frame and a tray, all which you get to paint and take home with you at the end of the course (and a brush too). You only need to bring an apron or some clothes you don't mind getting paint and dust on.

Each course has a maximum of 10 people and needs a minimum of 4 people to run. No shows on the day will forfeit their payment. Cancellations before the course starts will be refunded in full.

If you have any further questions please don't hesitate to call or email.


I can't quite believe it was a week ago I was attending your wood painting course - flown by and I had wanted to thank you for such an interesting, entertaining and professionally put together afternoon. We were both quite proud of our efforts and hope to take the plunge with some more pieces."

Just a quick thanks once again for the course on Saturday.  I had a great time and learnt a lot!  I’ll be drooling past the shop window in due course..."

"Thank you so much for your wonderful course yesterday, very informative, friendly and helpful, both Nicola and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! I would recommend you to anyone!  I’m already recommending you to all my friends."

"Hi Karen – just a quick note to say I really enjoyed my ‘paint course’ on Saturday and look forward to putting the experience to good use!"

" Thank you Karen. Had a wonderful time. See you in your shop with the furbabies in tow soon. Must buy some paint soon. Itching to get going. "
