LINDA MORRIS - April 30th
Really enjoyed the course with Vicky, I now have more ideas for how to upcycle my old furniture. Very well spent 3 hours.
Valerie - October 4th
I had a great time in our small class of three beginners. It was a three hour morning session, and we were plied with coffees, teas and biscuits throughout. Vicky was very thorough and patient in explaining what to do. I came away with a sample board of the 4 techniques that we had learnt (plus a printed aide-mémoire), as well as two picture frames to which I had applied my choice of paint techniques. I would have liked to have had the option of some bolder paint colours with which to work, and had the opportunity of trying out gilding wax. All said, it was a good introduction.

Great atmosphere. We were a small group which made it very easy to follow the different techniques. The material provided was fantastic and the 3 hours were very hands on. The trainer (sorry, I’m terrible with names..) was very nice and helpful. I’ll definitly go back and try another workshop!
Laura - June 11th
We had such a lovely morning and learned a great deal about paint effects. Vicky and Rachel were very welcoming and knowledgeable and we had the opportunity to practice lots of techniques which we will be able use on our own projects. Katharine has already bought the paint for her project! This is a great workshop to get you started on chalk painting. Laura ( and also on behalf of Katharine)

The teacher was really excellent and paced it really well. It was such a fulfilling day and i took away great techniques which I put to use soon afterwards. Lovely atmosphere in the studio.
