Traditional decorative paint techniques, like marbling and wood graining, have been used to decorate houses for over two thousand years. However these skills are rapidly disappearing and there are only a few places left now where students are able to learn these amazing crafts from an experienced professional.

To help prevent these skills from dying out altogether, I have developed a number of courses and workshops. They are designed to give anyone with an interest in crafts like marbling, wood graining, stone paint techniques and broken colour paint effects, the ability to tackle projects with confidence and skill.
