Boutique Paint Classes - On Hold due to Covid 19
If your looking for a fun way to get creative why not try one of the workshops or paint classes. If your keen to turn your old drab furniture into a new modern look than this is the place for you.
Workshops are run out of my studio in gorgeous bush surroundings at Lisarow on the Central Coast of NSW. The studio is air conditioned for the cooler and warmer months. Most beginners classes are run out of the studio.
If you love being out doors we also move into the garden area for our BYO workshops. This is to sand and complete our project pieces. If the weather conditions are extreme we simply roll our class over to another date. I will personally be in touch prior to the class. So be prepared with hats and sunblock on warmer days. Although we do use covers for shade id rather you be prepared.
With a beautiful eco friendly paint range on hand and all materials provided. Our small classes and workshops will give you the opportunity to get the most you can of each one. Each class has been tailored to suit from the beginner to those who just want to hone in or improve on their skills.
Come to you workshop loaded with questions, be open to learning new styles. Bring a friend and don’t forget to pay online to secure your spot.
Beginners class you will learn techniques to be able to complete a piece of furniture once you get back home. Here you will learn about the difference between chalk paint and mineral paint. What top coats to use with each paint and get to practice with the paint. So it is a hands on class. Come loaded with questions. I keep the classes small as this allows time for me to give you the one on one time that each of you deserve. Don’t worry about bringing anything as I’ll provide you all the materials which we use on the day. There is also opportunity to purchase at the end of the class. This is a 3 hour class. Afternoon tea is provided
BYO Chalk Paint and BYO mineral paint. These are great workshops, in which you now get to use your new found skills after completing a beginners class or if you are already painting but haven't quite moved onto furniture pieces than this is a great class to practice while under the teaching. Bring your own small piece of furniture which you must be able to carry in. A chair, a side table, plant stand or stool are just some ideas. No large pieces please as you'll need to able to finish your piece and take it with you at the end of the day. You will learn how to clean, sand and prep your piece, then of course paint and finish. You must be able to finish your piece within the allocated time. Again there is an opportunity to purchase products at the end of the workshop. This is a 3 hour workshop. Afternoon tea is provided. Bring a water bottle.
Funk your truck is a super fun creative workshop. Bring with you a small truck or camphor box, a hard case suitcase, crate or anything that resembles a timber box. Here we will get our colour on. Stripe it, stencil it, choose a style like beachy, shabby chic, French or match your home colours. Let your imagination run wild. Check out Pinterest for some inspiration. Come along bring a friend and enjoy the fun. This is a 3 hour class. Afternoon tea is provided bring a water bottle.
Paint Parties are run on a week day or evening in summer. Its just to get together with other like minded people to have a bit of fun painting together. There is an opportunity to purchase paint and brushes but i do ask that you bring your own equipment for this one. This is not a teaching class. It's just a bit of fun and friendship. You will need to bring, sandpaper, dusting brush, Cloths, jars, paint, brushes. You must be able to carry your piece in on your own. What ever you think you will need to complete your piece. If you want to meet new people come along. Its a 2 hour get together so a small project would be ideal and you will need to take your piece home with you. Bring your snacks and a water bottle.
These classes are for adults. Although we love kids and pets we ask that you have them minded in your own home. There are opportunities for kids classes run in the school holidays so keep an eye out for competitions for kids and kids workshops.
Lastly let’s get together and have a great time. All classes are on the Central Coast at Lisarow.
