The aim of the session is to teach you the basics of decorative painting and some techniques you can use to create patterns. You will then create a painted frame using our signature Fable frame. The class will show you how simple decorative painting is, even if you have not painted before!
We are fully launching the course in 2023 however are running one date in 2022 at a ~25% discount due to being our first session teaching this.
We are starting a decorative framing workshop in 2023 which can be bought independently or is a perfect combination with our freestyle workshop. This full day workshop will be focused on learning the basics of decorative painting and some simple motifs which can be be used in framing or elsewhere. We will talk through both freehand painting and using a stencil, and discuss the variety of paints which can be used.
After an hour's lunch break we will then move onto choosing colour palettes for creating one frame. We will talk through the colour theory of choosing paints and then each pick a colour palette which will work with your frame.
You will spend the afternoon painting one of our signature Fables frames. This will either be for a piece of art you have brought yourself or for an embroidery you are stitching (in parallel you will be able to purchase a bundle of fabrics and threads in complementary colours to your frame).
This frame will be left with us to dry and sent onto you the week after the workshop!. You will leave the session with some couple of paint brushes, the decorative patterns you have created and the paints you have been using incase you want to continue to work on your frame after the session.
