Decorative Painting workshops, or an introduction to, painting and distressing, crackle and craquelure,gilding, varnishing and aging...dates for 2013



Hello from Arundel Eccentrics 
here in a damp,
but for the moment, sunny,
 Arundel.

How are you?
We are getting organised for the next few months with our



Decorative Painting workshops


Learn to
paint & distress,
wax and age,
crackle and craquelure
decoupage,
& gild.....
make an old piece of furniture
you
found unloved,
looking seriously
destined for the rubbish tip,
into, at the most, a work of art
& treasured heirloom
at the very least
very much more beautiful than it did.
At the same time, enjoying
the tranquillity
of our
Riverside Studio
in the beautiful,
country town of Arundel,
where
you will be learning in a small friendly class
and enjoying a tasty, vegetarian lunch
with a glass of wine.


I know, I know, LOL, they really are as fun as they sound










We have met some lovely people and had some great workshops over the past few months.

Here is what some of them have to say.....


"What a wonderful, inspirational day,
I loved every minute of it"

"What an incredible experience
 doing decoupage with Brenda."

Ha ha this person added

"her ideas and her talent are endless,
her charm is delightful,
now add her scrumptious lunch
and you won't want to leave"

Thank you Sandy,
I only just noticed all those 
wonderful things you said, 
and now my head is 
so large I cannot get
 out of my house through the door.
I would also like to officially
 sign you up as my agent.
Ha Ha

" I never thought I could 
do anything remotely usable"
said Chrissie,
who turned this


and this

into this...she had NEVER done anything like this before.








We use all sorts of products
and introduce people to 

painting, distressing and waxing,
crackle glaze,
craquelure
gilding,
decoupage,
 and aging pieces in all different ways.

arundel.eccentrics@sky.com






If you would like to join us
just print off the booking form
(link below)

and send a deposit cheque with the completed form.
All the details are on the form.


We are doing special rates for small groups of friends.
(up to 4)



We also have gift cards,
so if you have a loved one you want
to treat to a special day out,
here's a great idea.

I WILL be getting all this information on the website,
but I am madly trying to complete furniture orders,
and I just don't get time to do it all.

If anyone out there,
is ever interested in helping with keeping
my website up to date, 
say, in return for a couple of paint workshops,
I would be delighted.


Anyway, in the meantime,
you can purchase a gift card at the small Christmas event
I am doing with some friends
 next week
at
80, Maltravers Street
Arundel

Friday 9th 6-9pm
Saturday 10th 10-4pm 


or at
Arundel by Candlelight
where we will have a stall in the town square,
selling our
Arundel Christmas Cards





Saturday 8th December.
