The Greedy Gourmet & Painting Furniture Workshops

Good Morning.

If you look outside here in Arundel
 you might be convinced it was a winters day.

It's only the roses,
 that give it away.

The wind is so strong its blown a door
right off it's hinges down at the studio.

I found this marvellous foodie blog yesterday.
Its great for carnivores and veggies alike,
which is perfect for us, as I am veggie and Nass most certainly is a carnivore.

Here's the link


The photographs are beautiful, 
with great attention to detail,
and there are some fabulous unusual recipes.

Furniture Painting workshops

Arundel Eccentrics 
have been in Arundel 
for almost 20 years.

Firstly, as 
The Old Brewery Warehouse
 and then
Ninevah House, Tarrant Street.

Over the years we have been honing our skills with furniture painting and decoration,
and,as well as having many regular
US antique trade customers,
we also supply shops in the UK such as 
Liberty in London.

Throughout the States,
our pieces are to be found in
 NYC, Texas, Florida, Carolina,California......
They are more travelled than we are.

Our work has featured in many 
interiors magazines,
House and Garden
Homes and Gardens,
BBC Homes and Antiques
in the UK 
Architectural Digest 
in the US.

If you would like to learn how to 
paint & distress,
wax and age,
crackle and craquelure
 & gild

make an old piece you 
found lying 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,
you will be learning in small classes,
with refreshments including
a vegetarian lunch and a glass of wine.

Let us know.

Give us an idea of what you 
would like to learn
some dates that would suit you.

We will try our very best
 to tailor the day,
 or days around you.

Gather some friends together
& join us in a small group of 4 or 5.

It would be a great and unusual day out, 
particularly if you live a distance away.

Or, if you want to make a weekend of it,
we can help you book rooms in
 one of our local fabulous B&B's, 
situated in the 
most wonderful historical houses Arundel's 
picturesque old town,
and organise other activities for
 you, either when the course hours are over,
or when you are all painted out.

9.30 am until 5 pm
£95 per day
