Get Creative in 2017 with a Homefront Workshop

Vanessa Clark

The New Year is upon us, and now the excitement has worn off it’s easy to start feeling a little glum about dark evenings and chilly mornings. So why not get into the spirit of spring a bit early, and start brightening up your living space with one of our fabulous Homefront interior design courses?

Chalk Paint Workshops- Learn the art of one and two colour ageing for a French Inspired look.

First of all, on the 4th of February (more dates available), we have another of our hugely popular Paint Workshops. Learn how to use Grand Illusions’ gorgeous Vintage range of chalk paints, which come in a wide selection of beautiful muted colours and give a lovely soft finish. We’ll cover many different techniques for painting and aging furniture to get the classic French Brocante look, and you’ll finish by painting your own wooden tray to take home. £90 for the day with lunch and refreshments included – just bring a 2 inch paint brush.

On the 25th of February, we’re excited to introduce a new course – artist Lucy Roberts will be showing you how to create a fabulous treasure box to show off all your most beloved keepsakes. This is a lovely way to save and display all those little mementoes you’ve gathered over the years – you can create one for yourself, or make a beautiful, thoughtful gift for someone else with tokens of your relationship. £45 for the morning – all you need to bring is your treasures!

Finally, on the 3rd of March, come to our next lampshade-making course with Sally Dove from Makers in Bristol. This three hour course will take you through the process of creating a stunning lampshade to brighten up any room of the house – all you need to do is bring along half a metre of fabric to complement the style and colours of your home. £45 for the morning, and don’t leave it too long to book – this is a really popular one and our lampshade course in February has already sold out!

 

 

Gift vouchers for all of our courses are also available, so if you’re looking for a present with a bit of a difference, why not give your loved one the opportunity to try out a new skill? Just pop into the shop and we’ll be happy to help you choose. 

Proud New Bath Stockists of Grand Illusions Vintage Paint

Vanessa Clark

Homefront Interiors Ltd is delighted to announce that we are Bath's official stockist for Grand Illusions' range of gorgeous vintage-style chalk paints - perfect for all sorts of interior decoration projects. Chalk paint is deeply fashionable at the moment, particularly for anyone looking to follow the vintage trend, because of its soft matte finish and beautiful colours, and we think that Grand Illusions offer one of the best ranges you can find.

So what makes Grand Illusions so special? We love their authentic approach - with their Vintage Paint range, Grand Illusions have lovingly recreated the buttermilk paint popular in the 18th and 19th century. The range is water-based and coloured with natural earth pigments, with a high chalk content (45%), so it's wonderfully smooth and easy to use. It’s also very breathable, making it perfect for interior walls & floors.

Natural pigments and the significant proportion of chalk mean that the colours in the Vintage Paint range are gorgeously soft and delicate, from gentle greys and creams to warm earth tones and elegant greens. We’d highly recommend this range for vintage-style furniture pieces, as once dry, the paints are easy to distress gently with sandpaper, giving great results. We also stock a range of complementary Grand Illusions products to help you achieve a worn and weathered look, including kits for ageing the look of paint and for achieving a crackled effect.

As well as the full range of Grand Illusions paints, we love their newly released book, Paint Vintage, also in stock at our shop in Margaret’s Buildings. Paint Vintage is a beautiful book and a fabulous guide to creating the vintage look for furniture and interiors – indispensable for beginners, but full of great advice too for those who’ve got a bit more experience. And if you are a beginner, why not join us for a class in our onsite workshop? For anyone looking to get into the world of upcycling and distressing furniture, we offer a one-day class (delicious lunch included, for just £90) where you’ll learn a great range of techniques, and take home a beautiful wooden tray which you have painted and distressed yourself. For more information, please do get in touch or just pop in and see us at the shop.
