What you'll learn in this furniture class:

Van Gogh Paintologist will teach a hands-on class that will introduce you to the unique qualities of Van Gogh Fossil Paint and Beeswax Finishes. 

This is for the DIY-er out there who wants to take a tired piece of furniture and turn it into the star of the show. There is no sanding or prep work involved in Van Gogh, just wipe down your piece and start painting.

You will have access to the entire Van Gogh Palette while you paint sample boards and work on a small project that you'll take home with you. You will learn a two color layering technique, a shadow stencil method, distressing and finishing. We will work on a small take home project so you can display your new found skills at home.

Anyone who wants to learn how to upcycle furniture will love this class. By the end of class you will have the know-how and confidence to try a larger project on your own. Start looking around your home or local thrift store for a piece that you can upcycle--after class you'll be hooked!

Reviewed by Sue D. on 7/28/2015
Bernadette is an amazing teacher. I had a wonderful time. I learned a skill that I will use forever. Bernadette is very knowledgeable when it comes to using fossil (chalk) paint on furniture. She is a lovely person as well.

Splint Weave Workshop

at Chicago Botanic Garden - Glencoe 1000 Lake Cook Road, Chicago, Illinois 60022

One of America’s favorite historical weaving techniques is the splint reed or flat reed, weave often found in Shaker-style furniture. This beautiful traditional weave and material works for almost any chair or footstool. See a demonstration of the splint weave process and then create a footstool with a woven top to take home.
