Chalk Paint 101 Workshop

Location: All classes are taught next door to Sentimental Journey in the basement of Homespun

This workshop is approximately 3 hours long and costs $65.00

During the “Basics 101” workshop, we will share with you a tremendous amount of information that will provide you with the tools to successfully and confidently tackle those DIY projects you have been wanting to do! In this casual, hands-on introductory workshop, you will not only have fun, but you will learn so much about using Annie Sloan’s Chalk Paint and Waxes. This paint is not one dimensional, so let us show you how to take advantage of its functionality!

In this “Basics 101” workshop, you will learn how to apply the paint, how to distress or polish using sandpaper and how to use the Clear & Dark Soft Waxes. (Applying the wax is often the biggest issue Chalk Paint users have- what is learned in the this workshop will eliminate that from happening to you!) You will be taught three of the most common techniques used in painting with Chalk Paint by Annie Sloan.

Two-Color Distressing

You will leave the workshop with your own sample boards and most importantly you will leave with the confidence and skills to tackle your own projects at home!
