Guilded Easter Eggs, April 12th
Learn how to create your own hand-painted sign on reclaimed wood, using Annie Sloan Chalkpaint and a variety of techniques to create your chosen effect. We paint, create, and age each sign using transfer imaging, stenciling and hand-painting in colours of your choice and then finish them ready for hanging. Each sign will be unique to you and all you need to bring along are the letters or messages you would like displayed on your sign (we will send you specifications for this).You will learn the skills to personalise and distress the sign for a vintage feel, and then be able to transfer your skills to other projects in the future. It's a fun way to create messages and signs for the home, or hand-make the perfect gift. Come and join us for three hours of chalkpaint fun!
