12:00-4:00 pm
908 S. Washington Ave. Emmett, ID

It's been a tough year, so let's start the new year right. In this special workshop, you'll bring a small piece of furniture of your own and transform it in class. You'll enjoy appetizers, beverages, and spending the day creating with your community. 

Optional: Bring a dessert to share and get a free sponge applicator + chip brush to take home! 

You'll learn: 

  • Cleaning and preparing your piece
  • Primers: when, why and how to use them
  • Basic painting techniques
  • Distressing (you don't have to distress your piece if you don't want to)
  • Sealing with wax and clear coats. *It's not good to seal your piece right after you paint it, so you'll practice on sample boards, and take home a container of wax or clear coat to seal your piece after it's fully dry.

    Project Guidelines

    You must be able to easily carry your project into the workshop and put it up on a table; so no dressers, bookcases, large tables, etc. Appropriate projects are a chair, small end table, small night stand, plant stand, magazine rack, or lamp. Project should be wood (real or faux) or metal and should not contain any glass. Project should not be in need of heavy sanding or repairs.

    About the Instructor

    Hi, I'm Brooke Sobol. I've been painting furniture professionally for six years and have painted hundreds of pieces. I've taught numerous in-person workshops and teach regularly through my Facebook page. I've encountered just about every type of problem there is, and I'll teach you how to avoid them. 

    I love working with beginners, and explain every step clearly so nobody is overwhelmed or lost. I also teach advanced techniques and love to watch my students take their craft to the next level. 

    With the Dixie Belle Paint line and related items like transfers, moulds, and decoupage papers, you can create anything you set your mind to. Even if you're not an artist.
