I am so excited to finally launch spaces for this fantastic workshop.  This is the second listing, due to popular demand.  This listing is to attend a fun packed complete beginners Frenchic painting workshop in person at my South Wales shop/studio. The studio is attached to my handmade gift shop, called Sweet Williams, which is based at 13 Herbert Street, Pontardawe, Neath Port Talbot, SA8 4EB.

It is a fantastic exclusive event, as the shop will be closed for the duration, meaning you have full use of the shop and facilities with my undivided attention.  

Frenchic Furniture Paint is the fastest growing Chalk Paint Company in the UK. It is an eco friendly paint, which is fantastic for a huge range of upcycling projects -  both indoors and outdoors.  

If you have been dreaming of transforming a piece of furniture, but you are nervous on how and where to start, then this is the class for you!  You will learn all of the basics on a piece of furniture that will be provided for you, to help you gain confidence before diving in to paint those projects you might have at home.  

Here is the breakdown of the event...

11am -            Complimentary glass of Bucks Fizz or Pink Lemonade  on arrival, mingling and the handout of your amazing Frenchic Goodie Bags. 

11.15am -        You will be presented with your solid pine wooden stool (which can be used as a stool or a lovely little side table), which you will be upcycling during the class and will be given an introduction to Frenchic and learn about its versatility.

11.30am -        Everyone to choose a tester pot of their choice from a wide selection on the day - this is included in cost of the workshop.  You should even have some left over to take home to paint some photo frames or other small projects.  Should anyone wish to use a second colour of anything that's not already open in my own collection of shop use paint, then you are by all means welcome to purchase a second pot at a discounted price.  

11.45am -        Start prepping / painting etc.

1.00pm -          Break for lunch - please ensure you bring a scrummy packed lunch with you.  You will also have access to as much tea, coffee, water, juice, cake and biscuits as you wish throughout the day.   

1.30pm -          Continue Painting and learn the basics surrounding decoupage.

2.30pm -          Learn about the different waxes, the Finishing Coat and how to look after your painted project.

3.30pm -          Finishing off projects and learning how to look after and clean brushes.  

4.00pm -          Class to come to a close and an opportunity to shop in store.  You will also receive a fabulous 10% off all Frenchic products on the day, should you wish to take anything home to continue your new skills.  

You will be presented with your Frenchic Furniture Paint certificate and will have a beautiful stool to take home with you.
