If you know a little about furniture painting and you’d like to advance your skills further, I’d love to welcome you to the next level of furniture painting and restoration at this one day workshop (10am to 3pm) in the relaxed and friendly environment of the beautiful Grappenhall Heys Walled Garden.

The workshop is ideal for people who have a basic knowledge of furniture painting, or those who have attended my Level 1 workshop previously. I will teach you more advanced and creative painting skills / techniques including moulding, glazing, raised stencilling, decoupage, blending and metallic/leaf foiling to help you continue on your upcycling journey.

About the Workshop

Lovely homemade cakes, cream scones, biscuits and tea/coffee are included in the price and are provided throughout the day. A delicious afternoon tea or lunch can be enjoyed in the gorgeous adjoining glass house Apé Bars Café which is open most days overlooking the amazing gardens, or please feel free to bring some lunch with you. All paints, products and tools required for the workshop are provided and are included in the price. Full workshop notes will include an explanation of all the tools, materials and techniques used..

You will not need to to bring any furniture with you to this workshop as all pieces, paints, products and tools required are provided and are included in the price and you will be able to take home your lovely creations.

With such a small group, there is plenty of time for one to one discussion and I will teach you all I know! I will be there every step of the way to guide you and to provide advice and ideas for some really creative results.

Set in the gorgeous 4 acre Walled Garden, originally created around 1830, now restored into a peaceful, well maintained and beautiful garden which is now a popular local visitor attraction and resource for horticulture, education and enjoyment.

The Walled Garden consists of two main areas, the fully working kitchen garden and the ornamental pleasure garden which are separated by a yew hedge. The site also includes a run of 8 fully refurbished victorian glasshouses, several outbuildings, 3 ponds and the gorgeous Apé Bars Café in the central glasshouse space.

Our workshop will be in the bright and airy schoolroom and adjoining glass house whilst looking out onto the spectacular gardens. On sunny days, we can get outside!

As you will know if you have attended one of my workshops previously, you won’t just leave with a new skill, but you will hopefully experience another really lovely day out from your busy schedule and pressures (with lots of chats, laughs, coffee and cake!). You will hopefully make more lovely new friends and hopefully be once again inspired to continue with your ongoing creative endeavours. Please see all of the lovely reviews from other attendees.

If you have any questions in advance of booking your place please get in touch.

I look forward to spending an enjoyable and creative day with you!
