Paint & Weave workshop

Paint & Weave workshop


Join Jo at Chirpy and Agnis Smallwood as they celebrate their business birthday's together this November.

Jo and Agnis are collaborating with talented maker Nicky from Done up North, a regular workshop facilitator at Chirpy, to bring two fun filled workshops.


10:00 - 15:00


Two workshops, 1 Outcome

Perfect for beginners

Learn the basics of furniture painting with Nicky from Done up North to customise your frame before weaving in your decoration with textile artist Agnis Smallwood in the afternoon.

Nicky will share with you her tools & techniques for prepping and painting furniture to achieve a smooth, long-lasting, professional finish. You’ll be painting with the leading edge furniture paint - Fusion Mineral Paint. It’s lovely to use, is extremely hard-wearing and, best of all, requires no top coat or wax. You'll get to design and create your own pattern to decorate your frame to compliment your weaving.

Agnis will demonstrate how to add your own bespoke warp to the frame before suggesting ways that different coloured and textured yarn can be used effectively within your work. There will be a large range of yarns available to use from natural to man-made and lots of colour choice as well.

As well as a fun day exploring two different techniques and taking away your bespoke picture frame wall art at the end of the day you will also receive a delicious lunch from a local Chapel Allerton business to enjoy half way through and drinks throughout the day.
