This two-session workshop is for beginners who want to understand the processes involved in painting furniture or small household pieces. We will paint on wood and will practice using gesso, wax and brushwork techniques. We will produce a number of small sample panels to cover techniques of painting, distressing, finishing, colour washing, crackling and applying decoupage or stenciling.
In the second week, students will apply their new-found skills to a tray. Students should wear casual clothes and/or an apron, and bring a notebook and pencil. There will be a 30-minute lunch break during each session.
