Chalk Paint Workshops


Would you or a group of friends like to learn to paint your own piece of furniture?

In my lovely  studio, close to Basel, I offer workshops where you will learn how to transform an old table, chair or cupboard into a new and personalized piece of furniture.

The classes are small and informal and the atmosphere relaxed. There is no need to have any prior furniture painting experience or artistic abilities.

I work with Annie Sloan chalkpaints. They are easy to use, no prep work necessary, that means no priming and no sanding!
