When finished you will leave with new techniques for your creative tool belt and 2 fabulous projects. Our planned 2 days promise to excite, enthrall and leave you feeling ready to take your decorative painting and home decor skills to the next level. And to share this experience with a Refectory full of like minded, creative people is what will truly make this workshop a most memorable event.
