The Basics + MORE

Come and discover why we, and Annie, say this is the “BEST paint in the world!” This introductory workshop is an inspiring, fun, hands-on experience. We supply everything, you just come ready to jump into a world of creative possibilities. That boring piece of furniture that you have at home, you will be able to transform it into a special one-of-a-kind treasure that your friends will be envious of. You will be introduced to Annie’s fabulous European inspired paint colours and waxes, which when applied correctly, give you a velvety smooth finish. We’ll teach you how to get that expensive Shabby Chic, French Country or farmhouse distressed finish that you love.

Wondering what happens during a Chalk Paint™ workshop? Take a look:


In The Basics workshop you will create your own hand-painted colour chart and six samples to take home. We will teach you various painting, distressing and waxing techniques, so that you will be able to paint your first project with confidence.

We will provide feedback and encouragement, the other students will provide camaraderie and excitement, and overall you will be inspired to paint.
