What’s Happening at The Painted Bench?

We always have a good selection of workshops using Annie Sloan Paint on offer at the shop, in August we’re going to kick things up a notch!

Make It Your Own with Annie Sloan

As always we will be running our cornerstone workshop, Make It Your Own with Annie Sloan.  This is where we teach you the basics of Chalk Paint™ and how to use this wonderful paint to create your own masterpieces.  In three short hours you will learn several techniques, many ways to distress, stencilling, and finishing with Annie’s Soft Wax.

Decoupage & Craqueleur Magic Workshop

This is a workshop that we’ve offered for quite a while and we think its time to change things up a bit!  In this class we use our wonderful Monahan Papers and Chalk Paint™ to create a lovely panel.  We will be adding a new aspect to this class with Artisan Enhancements plasters.  Learn how to create raised stencils with fine stone or pearl plaster, finishing off with Annie Sloan’s Craqueleur and Black Wax. Advanced techniques made easy!

Paint a Paddle Workshop

This has been our most popular new workshop of the summer!  This hot trend is sweeping the design world and now you can create your very own.  You will be using Chalk Paint™ by Annie Sloan to paint a beautiful Canadian made paddle.  Because the paddles are unfinished you will be using Dark Wax to create a lovely patina.  Let your imagination be your guide!
