Is it your turn to host the holiday events this year?

 

Are you worried you’re not going to get it all done, or even worse do you have “house shame”?

 

I know that feeling all too well.

 

So to help you create a stylish, incredible, warm and welcoming home this season we’re pulling out all the stops this month. We’re hosting a huge variety of workshops in the next few weeks including our most sought after event of the year. (learn more starting at min 5.26 in my video!)

 

Note: Before I dive into what these are all about – we will sell out of spots to all of these. So do not delay in registering for any of the workshops that you want to attend.

 

To help familiarize you with each workshop, I shot this quick video so you can understand what each one is all about. Once you’ve had a chance to watch the video you can find the link to all of the events here at the bottom of this email.

 

Be sure to check out the last part starting at minute 5.26 to learn about our Holiday Decorating Workshop!

 

Here are the workshops listed in chronological order (look for the blue titles)

November 26. Beginner’s Guide to Mastering the Art of Chalk Finish Painting Hands On Workshop

 

We thought long and hard about what we could do to avoid the craziness of Black Friday! So how about spending a day of your holiday weekend doing what you love?

 

Sign up for this small, intimate hands-on workshop where you will learn more how to paint and transform furniture with your very own teacher guiding you step-by-step!

 

You’ll learn how to use our antiquing glazes to create furniture that looks antique and luxurious…even if it’s brand new or a bargain find.

 

You’ll also be shown the fundamentals of distressing or removing the paint. If you truly want to give your furniture that vintage style, then it’s absolutely VITAL you learn how to distress your paint.

 

You’ll leave the class with your own sample set and your very own painted decorative object. Plus, you’ll learn 2 bonus tips that we don’t teach any other class.

· Pro distressing techniques and the fail-proof Amitha Verma Antiquing System to create an authentic finish

 

· The secret to signature finishes like dry brushing

 

· Amitha’s favorite treasure trove of techniques to make an ordinary piece come alive with detail (this should be it’s own class)

Plus, you’ll get a free handout that will help guide you, step-by-step, through your future projects and you’ll leave with samples you can keep referring back to for years to come.

 

It is highly recommended you take the Beginner’s Guide course before enrolling for the Advanced Pro Class. We will jump right into several Advanced Techniques.
