join us at a workshop! from the basics for beginners to additional layers for more experienced painters, we offer technique instruction to take your finishes to the next level. most of our courses are self-contained as one session, so that you can jump in anywhere.
to register, just click the green button below the session of your choice, and follow the prompts. if you prefer to pay by cash or check, or you’re redeeming a gift certificate, give us a call or pop by either location to reserve your spot. if you have any difficulties with online registration or payment, please let us know – since registration is not complete (and places unfortunately cannot be held) until payment is received, please call, email or message us if you’re having any issues, or to let us know you’re mailing a check.
unless otherwise noted, all workshops are taught by annie-sloan- & miss-mustard-seed-certified instructor stephanie jones, author of upstyle your furniture. most hands-on paint courses are held at our overton square shop & studio, though educational events pop up occasionally at our germantown shop and other venues.
the fine print: only payment in full holds your spot…registrations for mrs. jones’s workshops cancelled more than 72 hours in advance will be rescheduled for the next mutually agreeable date…cancellations for workshops taught by guest instructors will be accommodated if the spot can be filled by someone from the wait list…as annie sloan says, ‘kindly leave your tiara and cashmere at home’, so dress for comfort, and be ready to relax, learn and have fun…other than a specified ‘bring your own’ class, our workshops include all materials, supplies, pre-printed notes, and refreshments…doors open 20 minutes before class time…workshops are suited for students ages 15 and up.
please note that we keep our workshops limited in size, so that everyone has plenty of time and attention. that means that spots fill quickly, so if you see something you’re interested in, jump in and commit so that you don’t end up on the wait list! on the flip side, workshops that are not filling may need to be postponed or cancelled (especially those taught by our guest instructors.) either way – please don’t wait until the last minute to register.
when you come to visit us in overton square, please enter through the courtyard on madison avenue. there is street parking all the way around our block, or in the lot across from us on madison, the spaces behind our building, or the square parking garage just to the southeast. (the garage is free until 6pm, and $3 after 6.)
