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?
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.
