I was recently invited to participate in a chalk painting workshop in the beautiful Barossa Valley. I drove out to Angaston on a lovely Saturday afternoon to Brocante on the Barossa. Today I'm happy to share my chalk painting workshop experience with my readers but before I get into it, I MUST share some exciting news!!!
The lovely Kim from Brocante is actually bringing her workshops to Adelaide this weekend! YES! So if you are quick, I think there may be a vacancy or two left. If you love art, if you love renovating, home DIY or just want to learn something fun & new, don't miss this opportunity to learn all about & do a hands on workshop with Annie Sloan chalk paints!
Chalk Paint™ Express Adelaide Basics: Sun, Nov 16th, 10 AM – 12N
Chalk Paint™ Express Adelaide More!: Sun, Nov 16th, 1 – 3 PM
You can find all the details about booking through the website Brocante on the Barossa. Click on the workshops tab to find out more & how to book. I'm sure Kim would love to hear from you!
Ok, so back to my workshop! When I arrived & entered the beautiful shop/studio, I was met by owner/artist Kim, the lovely Jane Evans from The Provendery who invited me to the workshop, Jane Paech from Knife & Fork in the Road & some other workshop participants too. After a quick chat we had the chance to walk around & lust over all the lovely things in Kims shop before our class started. I could have looked around for hours. It was all so lovely!
I fell in love with all these divine door knobs and just wanted to buy one of each!
Kim's shop/studio is not only an authorised retailer of Trademarked Annie Sloan Chalk Paints & accessories but Kim herself is an authorised & experienced Annie Sloan Chalk Paints workshop instructor. Her studio is filled with all the art supplies you need that work seamlessly with Annie Sloan paints including stencils, brushes, Annie Sloan books, soft wax treatments, crackle mediums etc.
The shop is also filled with the many projects that Kim has worked on with these paints & materials as well as other trinkets & French inspired home wares. A Francophile & art lover at heart, naturally I loved everything about it! Homewares, French inspired things + paint = a match made in Heaven!
