Please enter using the main Hylands House entrance off London Road and The Stables is positioned to the left of the main house. A green gated entrance will lead you into The Stables courtyard.

The introductory workshop will be a relaxed and fun three hours when you will be given the opportunity to sample the Annie Sloan paints, brushes and waxes.
This is an ideal introductory workshop suitable for beginners and those who have a little experience. During the workshop you will learn the following:
Two-colour distressing, using one colour over another
Texturing the Paint, which you will accentuate with Clear, Dark, White and Black Wax
Colour mixing, we will show you the basis behind which you can go on to mix an unlimited number of colours
Smooth finish and creating a wash effect.
These are the techniques which are going to take your pieces of furniture to the next level and give you the confidence to do more than painting a piece in one flat colour.
We will also cover information about Annie herself, problem solving, tricks of the trade and any other bits of advice and information you’d like to know.
The workshop will finish with a short studio tour and an opportunity to receive a 10% discount** on Annie Sloan products in the Paint Studio (**valid on the course date only and offer excludes Project Packs as these already contain discounted items).
Introduction Workshop cost is £69pp and includes all the materials you need as well as refreshments throughout the workshop.
