On 22nd November or 13th December

They say;
Join Annie Sloan for this workshop where she will provide an introduction to Chalk Paint®, colour theory, and the history of Charleston Farmhouse. 
Annie Sloan is delighted to announce two very exclusive workshops, which she will be hosting at the iconic Heal’s building on Tottenham Court Road. These workshops will provide an introduction to Chalk Paint®, to colour theory, and to the history of Charleston Farmhouse. 

Annie will be sharing her infectious passion for Interior Design, for Chalk Paint® and for colour – as well as demonstrating the various techniques and styles which can so easily be achieved with her products. Workshop attendees will be using Annie’s brand-new, limited-edition Annie Sloan with Charleston Chalk Paint® colours to transform a wooden keepsake box, and so there will be a focus on the history of Interior Design and Decorative Arts which so influenced Vanessa Bell, Duncan Grant, Roger Fry, et al. Expect to be informed, inspired and amused. Each attendee will take home their painted keepsake box, all the ingredients to complete another painted furniture transformation at home, and a newfound supply of creative confidence!
