Courses / Basic Painting Techniques on Furniture

The student begins training at the Isabel O'Neil Studio Workshop with the Basic Painting Techniques course.
Techniques learned in this course give the craftsman a solid foundation for future courses.

Surface preparation, shellacking, paint application, antiquing, waxing and varnishing are learned on practice boards and executed on a chair or small table.

By the end of the ten-week worse the apprentice has rendered an expertly painted piece of furniture, its best creatures carefully accented and its surface enhanced with the patina of gentle aging. Most importantly, an awareness of the discipline of craftsmanship and a keen appreciation for detail has been fostered.
