Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Workshops

We had a great weekend in High Point, North Carolina at Faux Works, the studio of Barb Skivington. We are now certified to teach Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Techniques to all of you!

First, I want to heap praise on Barb Skivington. She is an amazingly talented artist and an incredibly gifted teacher. She is lovely and elegant and has a great sense of humor.  She is also an Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Stockist. Her website is http://fauxworksstudio.com/. If you are reading this and live in her region, she is your go to retailer for all things Annie Sloan. I also encourage you to take one of her workshops. You will learn how to use the Annie Sloan products like a master from her.

Now for those of you that have been waiting to take an Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Workshop in the North Florida area, here are the ones we have scheduled thus far:

 
 Introduction to Annie Sloan:

 WHEN: Saturday, November 26, 2011 –  Session A: 10 am to 12 pm OR Session B: 2 pm to  4 pm (Space is limited to 8 participants for each session).

 WHERE: The Barn at Sweet South Cottage. (This is the same location where our retail store is  located, except you take the first entrance which is 6001 Veterans Memorial Drive versus the second entrance for Sweet South Cottage which is 6007 Veterans Memorial Drive.)

COST: $95 person or $180 for two participants that book together, paid in full. (If you have a party of three or more attending, contact Lisa at 850-284-5165 to discuss special pricing.)

After all the turkey and pie eating on Thursday, and all the shopping on Friday, come on Saturday,  for the Introduction to Annie Sloan Workshop. In this workshop, you will learn two basic techniques and about all the amazing qualities of and uses for this ground-breaking paint including; how to use two colors to achieve the classic Shabby Chic look and how to distress and age your finishes with clear, dark and colored waxes.  We will actually hold two of these two-hour workshops that day. We thought this might be a fun thing to do with family that is visiting.  All supplies and light refreshments will be provided. Please wear clothing that you don’t mind getting paint on.

However in this workshop, you will learn a total of six painting techniques; including how to use two colors to achieve the classic Shabby Chic look, blend two or more colors on the surface, apply a washed effect, crackle the paint to give it some character, use the paint as an impasto (thickly), and distress and age your finishes with clear, dark and colored waxes.
