About the Workshop

Billinge is a lovely country village on the outskirts of Wigan with rolling meadows and the well known Billinge Lump and countless beautiful scenic walks and views.

Our workshop will be held in The Boho Shed’s workshop with gorgeous views of cornfields and one of the old farmhouse barns.

You will have the opportunity to bring along a piece of furniture (such as a chair, a stool, a small unit, picture frames, a small table etc.). Ideally, a piece of furniture with some bevelling or carving would allow you to try out the different techniques you will learn during the course.

I will explain all about the different paints available and the pros and cons of each, differing brushes, tools, materials and protective products required for effective and creative furniture painting.

I will teach you a variety of painting techniques including:

  • One- coat distressing
  • Multi-coat distressing
  • Ageing
  • Crackling
  • Stencilling
  • Dry brushing
  • Waxing
  • Finishing and paint protection

You will be able to practice these newly learned techniques on a sample board (which will be yours to keep as a reminder) prior to painting your own piece. I will then discuss with you on a one-to-one basis your ideas and preferences for painting your furniture using your newly learned skills, and I will assist you (with as much or little advice as you would like) in transforming your piece into something wonderful during the second half of the day.

 

For You to Bring
