Furniture Painting Workshops

Have you had it in the back of your mind for a while that you would like to try your hand at restoring and refreshing your dated furniture but you are not sure where to start, or have you had a go but are not sure if there is a better, easier or more creative way?

I would be delighted to welcome you to one of my friendly and welcoming one day workshops at a venue in Lancashire, Cheshire or Greater Manchester on a date to suit you.

Lovely words from one of my attendees...

“I have now completed both levels one and two furniture painting techniques course with Jo from The Boho Shed. It was great to learn about the different products and painting techniques and to gain confidence in how to apply them. Jo is a lovely teacher and encourages creativity and the desire to go home and paint using the skills learned. Jo’s courses are fun, informative and friendly and I have already booked onto her next upholstery course. I would highly recommend Jo’s workshops…….plus the cakes are delicious!”

Furniture Painting Workshop Venues and Dates

Attending a furniture painting workshop is a fun and rewarding way of quickly and easily learning the skills required to get creative with your furniture and interiors. You will learn all about the preparation required for your furniture (no need for stripping, priming or heavy sanding), the different paints, brushes and other products available and the pros and cons of each. Also about the tips and tools of the trade and the wide variety of different techniques and ideas available for creatively painting your furniture.

On the LEVEL 1 Furniture Painting Course, you will learn a variety of creative techniques including crackling, dry brushing, distressing, two colour, stencilling, waxing, finishing and paint protecting techniques and you will be able to bring your own piece of furniture to transform using your newly learned skills during the workshop.

For those of you who would like to take things a little further, the LEVEL 2 Furniture Painting Course will include the techniques glazing, raised stencilling, image transfer, decoupage, blending, and metallic/leaf foiling.

You will hopefully return home full of inspiration and the know how to continue with your own projects knowing I will be on hand to give you further advice and guidance if required.

Each workshop will run from 10am to 3pm with lunch break and plenty of coffee/tea/cake in between – my Mum’s delicious scones and Aunty B’s gorgeous cakes are becoming very popular among workshop attendees.

Please don’t worry if you are a complete novice! I will explain everything from the beginning during both Level 1 and 2 courses.

The numbers are kept small (6 to 8) so I will be on hand for one-to-one instruction as much as you need during the day.

Everything you will need for the workshop will be included i.e. chalk paints, brushes, waxes etc., and paints and products will be available for you to buy at the workshops should you wish to continue with your own projects at home. Cash, PayPal or Bank Transfer payment methods will be available on the day.
