Saturday 23 & Sunday 24 October 2021, Online Workshop, Painted Furniture with Annie Sloan
Saturday 23 & Sunday 24 October 2021, 14:00 - 17:00 BST (British Summer Time, London, UK)
Annie is a paint and colour expert who invented Chalk Paint® in 1990. She’s also a mentor to her network of independent small business owners, an author, and a grandmother. Annie Sloan Interiors is now a global business; but they treat every tin of paint made at the factory in Oxford as if Annie were mixing it, selling it, or using it herself. Her mission is to give everybody the practical tools and, more importantly, the confidence to make their homes entirely their own using her range of furniture paint, wall paint and decorative accessories. If you can imagine it, Annie can help you achieve it.
Outline of workshop
In this online workshop, you will be inspired to transform your furniture alongside Annie Sloan as she provides you with useful, creative tips and tricks to help you along the way. You’ll be coached by Annie’s practical approach to painting and gain the confidence to achieve a beautiful, decorative finish without the fuss.
Inspired by her collaboration with Charleston Farmhouse, this workshop will be focused on the colours Annie has designed, plus a special demonstration on decorative pattern and mark-making with her Detail Brushes. Annie’s collaboration with Charleston has seen her create three distinctive Chalk Paint® colours inspired by the incredible home of the Bloomsbury group. Each of the colours are named after local places which the artists would have known, and are inspired by elements of the highly decorated rooms within the British farmhouse.
Style-driven, colour confident and practical, this one-off workshop with Annie will be a unique experience to gain-first hand knowledge, helpful tips and creative passion from one of the world's authorities in paint, colour and style.

This workshop is open to all levels of experience and creativity, and is perfect for those wanting to learn some first-hand knowledge from Annie, expand their creative abilities and be ignited by her passion and know-how to transform their furniture.
