Furniture Transfers and Saturday Afternoon Workshops

Workshops are now running on a Saturday afternoon instead of Sundays.  When you sign up at the shop or online here you can bring along a small piece of furniture like a bedside cabinet or drawers from a larger piece.

Last week in a small workshop (I only take up to 3 people at a time) we focussed on transfers.


Here, Mary's painting a tray with Autentico's Violet Grey chalk paint (hairdryer for speedy drying process in the shop).


We looked at a number of transfer methods - Mary chose some French typography for black and white photocopy transfer.


Everything was sealed and waxed...


And ready to go home for a new use - no longer a children's games tray, now a drinks tray in the lounge :-)
