Join Mara and Linda on Saturday, April 9th from 10:00 AM to 02:00 PM for this Dixie Belle Chalk Painting Class. You will be painting your own piece in this class. They will be demonstrating how to prep, clean and paint your piece from start to finish.
Let's create something beautiful together!
We want to share our love for renewing furniture by simply painting it with chalk mineral paint. Yes! It’s that easy and effortless with Dixie Belle Paint Company products. Come learn from us all the right steps - we are Elite Dixie Belle Retailers.
Learn the Basics .... Prep - 1 Color Paint - Distress - Protect all in 4+/- hours!
No sanding or cleaning your piece before class - just knock off the dust.
After our workshop, you will leave with a small piece of furniture completely transformed by YOU plus the confidence and support to continue painting even after the class ends!
This class is painting only, no stripping, reupholster or other chipping paint pieces. Make sure to bring a small clean non-chipping piece.
Cost: $95 – includes all materials including: 8 oz. of chalk mineral paint, topcoat finish to seal your piece.
RSVP - Select your Color & Pay in Advance online, over the phone, or in person at least 3 days before the class.
Space is limited to 5 participants.
Class registration close 3 days prior to any class so we may prepare your items and arrange our staff appropriately.
What do I bring?
You will bring in any small wood item: a couple of picture frames, a shelf, a chair/stool, maybe even a small side table – nothing bigger than 2 feet tall/wide (A good rule of thumb: if you can carry it by yourself without a cart; you can bring it!) Also, think about transporting your new treasure home safely. Perhaps bring a blanket or towels for protection.
Can I bring snacks or beverages? Absolutely!
What do I wear?
Consider wearing comfortable clothes and something you do not mind getting paint on –just in case.
What does Paint Transfer Design provide?
Consider us the all-in-one of chalk painting classes!
Our classes are purposefully limited in participant size to provide a guided hands-on experience from a certified instructor. We provide all the supplies and tools needed for you to be successful– from set up to paint, paint brushes, sand paper, sealer, and final clean up. Plus, you keep all your non-consumable supplies including what is left in your 8-oz. jar of Dixie Belle Paint. Think of it as a learner’s kit to continue painting!
1. Photos please!
Please send us a photo of your piece. This way we can anticipate if your item happens to need a little prep work with a primer before you begin. Does it have a super glossy finish? Is a mahogany or wood that is prone to bleed through if you are going to paint it white.
Send that photo to PaintTransferDesign@gmail.com
2. Color please!
Let's set aside your jar of paint --- as we tend to sell out of colors ironically the day or two before your scheduled workshop. There are 64 fantastic colors to choose from, so once you know your color contact us either here, through our Facebook event post, or over the phone, so we can set it aside for you.
We look forward to a lot of laughter and fun!
Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?
For this class we suggest the minimum age to be at least 13 years old accompanied with a parent.
What are my parking options?
Parking is available in the rear of the building. We are located next to the Armory Building at 16 Main Street, East Greenwich. Take a right (if heading North) or left (if heading South) from Main Street to Division Street. Take your first right on Malborough Street and your first right into the parking lot. There is plenty of parking. Entrace to the building is in the right-hand corner, next to the tall Evergreen Tree.
What can/can't I bring to the event?
Please do not bring large/heavy items as we cannot accommodate the loading/unloading necessary for multiple people during the busy day. Plus, we only have a few hours together and it would take much longer for larger items like dressers, chest of drawers, etc. to paint/dry/seal.
Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?
If you have any questions, please call us at 401-366-2322 or message us through Facebook
