Sarah Macaulay Studio



About this workshop:

Learn without leaving home! A perfect option for a special birthday, womens’ group, hen party, book club, yoga buddies – whatever you choose! A paint party is a wonderful way to spend quality time with friends, enjoying a mindful and creative day.

What will I learn?

This is a group painting session over a full day (5.5 hours) where you will be guided through the furniture painting and refinishing process (or choose from a selection of home decor craft projects).

If you’ve always wanted to learn how to breathe new life into your furniture and home decor but you aren’t sure where to start, then this session is perfect for you. We can tailor the day to suit your group’s needs and teach you chalk paint techniques such as stencilling, découpage, distressing, and waxing, to name a few.

The paint party covers 5.5 hours of expert personal tuition and includes all paints, waxes, finishes and any other materials needed to complete your projects. If the booking is at your home I will bring aprons, drop sheets and wipes so no need to worry about mess.

What should I bring?

Bring along a small piece (or two) of furniture such as a bedside table, chair, mirror, side table or stool. You are welcome to bring along a few drawers, cupboard doors or mirror from a larger piece to start off and finish the rest of that project at home. Make sure your piece is sturdy and wipe it down if very dirty. You will do the other preparation to your piece at the beginning of the workshop.

What will be provided?

Your choice of eco-friendly Australian made Artisan Paint (Natural Chalk Finish), waxes and finishes, and all other materials and tools that you require to complete your project.

If you are coming to the studio, I provide morning and afternoon tea and drinks, you just need to BYO lunch. Please advise me in advance of any dietary restrictions or allergies.

What should I wear?

Aprons are provided but it’s best if you wear old clothes in case of paint splatter. Please wear closed toe shoes.

Where is Sarah Macaulay Studio located?

Please park on the street outside number 18 and come up the drive, along the right-hand side of the house and through the gate.
