Wet Paint: Furniture Painting Workshop

Happy New Year.............

I'm back, feeling on top form after Christmas and a couple of weeks bed/sofa bound and ready to share some exciting news.

Perhaps you have a New Years Resolution? Want to learn something new for 2014? Well, I may have the thing for you.

This year I am opening my studio doors (Yes, we got the studio finished before Christmas, explains the blog silence) to teach some workshops. My first workshop is part of an exciting new collaboration with my very talented Mother-In-Law, together we have launched Wet Paint. Offering high end painted furniture, taking commissions and teaching furniture painting workshops. This workshop will be one of many over the coming year, I have a feeling 2014 is going to be great, busy but great!
