Workshops

Jumping feet first into the world of furniture painting and refinishing can be intimidating. That’s why Cindy Klein, owner of The Painted Crate, offers three levels of workshop classes. Whether you’re just getting started or already know the basics, her workshops will help you take your skills to the next level so you can begin creating pieces you love.

 

Classes:

This class is for the true beginner. Cindy will walk you through everything you need to know about painting furniture.  You can bring in something small and easy.  If you don’t have anything, don’t worry, she has a piece for you to learn on. You’ll learn two painting techniques, she’ll teach you about wax and poly finishes, and she’ll provide everything you need. This three-hour class is best when 1 – 3 people are enrolled, and the cost is $60 per person.

Workshop space is limited, so full payment is due when registering. Classes are nonrefundable, but you can reschedule — stuff happens!

What’s provided:

  • A “The Painted Crate” apron
  • A 10 percent off coupon for the paint needed for your project the day of workshop & a coupon good for three months for a one time purchase of paint and supplies
  • Two page handout of tips and techniques from years of experience

 

The Intermediate (a/k/a Studio Space) –  Just call/email to schedule a time!

This coaching class is for those who have already taken The Basics class, or for those who already know the basics of furniture painting and have attempted a few projects on their own.  This time is also perfect if you just need a space to get started! The Basics isn’t a prerequisite, but it is highly recommended. This time will allow you to explore the variety of brushes, paints, techniques, and finishes available. It will help you discover the style that fits your personality and budget. This class is for furniture painting only; sanding and staining is taught at the Carpentry Basics class.

You’ll have use of Cindy’s brushes, but you’re required to bring your own piece — something like a drawer front or small side table. Cindy will be available to answer questions and give advice, but she won’t be at your side the whole time. She’ll encourage you to spread your wings and develop your own unique style! This three-hour class is best for 1 to 3 people, and the cost is $40. A 10 percent discount will be provided for you to purchase paint to use on your project at this class.

Workshop space is limited, so full payment is due when registering. Classes are nonrefundable, but you can reschedule — stuff happens! Make sure you wear comfortable clothes you won’t mind getting a little messy!
