                    Furniture painting workshops - an introduction to paint and wax finishes

This introductory workshop will teach you some of the essential techniques used to recreate the French country look using paint and wax.

There will be practical advice on how to choose and prepare furniture, along with hints and tips on choosing paints and finishes. Working on practice boards, you will learn 2 colour distressing, ageing with wax and stenciling. You can also try out these techniques on a wooden jewellery box which will be yours to take home.
