Workshops

The Complete Chair Makeover Workshop

Hosted by Liz Perry/Verity Southwell, Knight Design Interiors - The Paint Studio, Chelmsford

Mixing our love of fabric, chalk paint and upcycling, the Complete Chair Makeover is a popular workshop! Collaborating with our sister Studio Knight Design Interiors, we are able to offer you access to many Designer fabric remnants to upholster your chair with.

This is a full days course where you will learn how to completely strip and reupholster a drop-in seat style vintage chair (which we have sourced for you) using one of our beautiful fabrics as well as giving it your own style of chalk paint finish. All materials, including the chair are provided. You come away with invaluable skills and a brand new chair!
**Please note that this is a physical workshop involving a lot of standing and bending - comfy shoes are essential!**

The cost of this full day workshop is £149 per person and includes all the materials you will need including the chair and fabric as well as refreshments throughout the day and a sandwich lunch.

Paint Surgery

Hosted by Liz Perry/Verity Southwell, Knight Design Interiors - The Paint Studio, Chelmsford

This surgery session is designed for delegates who have already attended one of our Introduction workshops and would like help starting a small piece of furniture. 

We will be running a selection of these dates in the afternoon of an Intro workshop day so that you can 'tag-on' this session and bring a small piece of furniture (small bedside tables are ideal) to get started.

Or perhaps you'd like help with a specific technique you are mastering?

You will have access to all materials (and a chance to try all colours before you buy them) as well as on hand expert advice for your specific piece of furniture, to help you through the tough bits and make sure you can finish your piece with confidence!

You will have access to brushes, waxes and any tools you need.

£25pp for the first hour (minimum payment) and £15pp per hour thereafter.
