Introduction to Furniture Painting with Done up No

Introduction to Furniture Painting with Done up No


In this workshop Nicky from Done up North will take you through the process of painting furniture with a contemporary smooth finish, as well as techniques for creating decorative, geometric patterns in her distinctive style. 

This is a hands on workshop and you'll be working with a wooden box which you'll prep, paint and customise with a painted design created with masking tape. Your box to paint comes with a starter kit which includes brush, tester pots of paint and finish and useful tools & tip cards and is all yours to take home with you. 

You'll be working with Fusion Mineral Paint, a specialist furniture paint that gives beautiful results and is easy to work with but is non-toxic, lead free, virtually odourless and has no volatile organic compounds (VOC) and contains no ammonia or formaldehyde. You'll get a chance to use some of the 50 different colours as well as metallics in their range.

No experience is necessary and all abilities are welcome. Wearing clothes suitable for painting is a good idea or bring an apron. All other materials will be supplied. 

Refreshments will be available during the workshop and there will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions and get advice for your projects while you are painting too.

This workshop is for ages 16 and over.
