This workshop will be taught by myself, Charlotte, the owner of Not Too Shabby by Charlotte.
I use these products and techniques every day to create bespoke furniture commissions and am passionate about sharing my love of paint and creativity with new people! 
During this workshop you'll learn how to use paint to create so many different effects!
You'll learn how to use... 
  • Blending and ombre techniques
  • Traditional stencilling
  • Raised stencilling - smooth and textured
  • Creating different textures with fresco
  • Accentuating details with glazes
  • Applying waxes 
  • Using the amazing PolyOnlay furniture onlays
  • Painting with metallic paints
  • Crisp masking tape lines
I have lots of samples in the studio to show you all these techniques, so that you can see many potential variations, styles and colour combinations to inspire you.
    All materials will be provided and you'll put these techniques into practice on your own personalised step stool to take home
    Classes are kept small, at a maximum of 8 people, so that I can give you my full attention and we can have a fun and friendly group.
    You'll leave with all the confidence, skills and knowledge you need to continue creating at home! We'll discuss how you can apply your newly learnt skills to furniture and other projects.
    Plus there'll be 10% off Fusion Mineral Paint, Milk Paint by Fusion, PolyOnlay and ClingOn Brush purchases on the day
    Aprons will be provided, however I suggest that you don't wear your best clothes as this is a hands on workshop so we'll be painting and if you're anything like me you'll get it on you! 
    The workshop will take place on the beautifully renovated balcony of my workshop, The Old Baptist Church, 170 Norman Street, Ilkeston, DE7 8NR.
    Access to the balcony is via 14 steps.
    There is plenty of on street parking.

    The workshop will be followed by a delicious lunch prepared by my favourite local delicatessen. Please let me know if you have any allergies or dietary requirements. 

    The workshop is 10am til 4pm. Please arrive at 9.30 to get settled in, help yourself to a cuppa and meet your new friends 

    I can't wait to see you there! xxx
