Distressed & Gilty creative workshopRegular price $171.00
Learn the art of distressed painting and gilding techniques in a variety of surfaces, such as picture frames, side tables and ornaments.
I’ll work with you to prep, paint and age your very own vintage home accessory… which you can take home at the end of the day.
Suitable for enthusiastic, hands-on beginners and/or those of you who are already keen up-cyclers, workshop attendees will learn about the products and methods I use to create “faded glamour”!
Using painting and crackle glazing techniques, as well as a variety of gilding applications including gold leaf and metallic waxes, this is the chance to create the one-off, antiqued finishes I love to employ in my own home and commissions.
The day is also about relaxion and fun! I started glamcycling furniture as a hobby to de-stress and unwind, which is why I call it my “upcyclatherapy.”
Hosted at the wonderful, warm and inviting Reloved Works studio at Pear Mill Vintage Emporium… truly a vintage shopaholic’s dream destination! Groups are small – up to six maximum to ensure my guests get plenty of one-to-one assistance and time for chats!
Please note, I provide items to work on during the day, but those of you who want to bring along your own piece along, please do so! Just send me a snap of what you want to bring, and I’ll confirm if it’s a suitable project for the day. Items which are suitable include:
