Powder Grey workshops take a variety of forms. From upcycling and painting to flower arranging
Frame & Furniture Painting Workshops
Our introductory frame / furniture painting workshops are a great opportunity to relax and have some creative fun whilst you learn how to upcycle your items. You will have access to the Pure & Original Classico paints/brushes/waxes/aprons that are available from Powder Grey and can practice in a friendly and relaxed environment.
At the start of the class, over a cuppa, we will discuss colours and the item you have brought with you to paint, therefore please bring your chosen frame, ie picture frame, mirror frame, wall photo frame etc; or, if participating in a furniture workshop, your chosen item for upcycling. We offer a 10% discount on painting kits, tools and materials purchased during any paint workshops. Refreshments and nibbles will be available throughout the workshop. Please contact us to book.
During the class, you will learn…
