The Inside Story

Interior Design  

Annie Sloan


Here at The Inside Story we are lucky enough to stock one of the most popular chalk paints on the market.  And with books, brushes, stencils and fabrics, you too can join the wonderful world of upcycling. Come in store to see the vast range of colours and one of our experts can help guide you through the process.


Alternatively if your thinking of an upcycling project then why not learn the basic techniques by coming along to one of our three creative workshops.


LEVEL 1 :- this workshop is for the true beginner. we will teach you how to use the Annie Sloan products with different painting techniques and finishes. you will be using both clear and dark wax as well as the craqueleur to create a unique look. If you want an introduction to the paint this is definitely the course for you.


LEVEL 2 :- For those of you who have some experience with the paint already, this workshop is fantastic for learning the little extra with the other Annie Sloan products. From decoupage, stencilling, to image transfer, gold, silver and copper leaf there is something to suit everyone.


LEVEL 3 :- This workshop really inspires you to be creative using all the techniques you have used on the previous courses. selecting your own fabrics, trims and paint colours, you will have the opportunity to create you very own Annie Sloan cushion. from sewing to painting we will help you to create a masterpiece.


All of our courses include the materials and paint required. they last between 2-3 hours and refreshments are provided on the day. Each course is £65 or if you would like to attend all 3 we offer it at a discounted rate of £150. Plus as a special bonus you will receive 10% off all Annie Sloan products on the day so you can go home and start upcycling!!
