Annie Sloan and Steph Briggs in Oxford 2017

Stephanie at La Di Da Interiors has been directly trained by Annie Sloan and runs a variety of workshops to help you build confidence and techniques to paint your furniture. These fun  and informative courses will leave you inspired and ready to tackle your projects with confidence.  You will learn about the paints, application, waxes and laqueur and get the opportunity to use all the products that make painting so effortless. The "Annie Sloan Method" includes tuition in three different types of paint effect and finishes. "Techniques in Style & Colour" includes flat finishing, distressing, gilding & image transfer. 



All materials, instructions and lots of tea & cake are included in each workshop.  If you want to buy the workshop as a gift please buy one of our vouchers (available here or in store) and we will pop it in the post to you. The vouchers are valid for 12 months from date of purchase.

Here are some reviews from our students....

"I am so glad I chose to do this course! Steph is the oracle of all things Chalk Paint - if you're looking to learn about furniture up-cycling, different painting techniques, waxing, craqueleur, decoupage, tips and tricks, dos and don'ts - look no further.
Thank you Steph for a thoroughly enjoyable day - lots of fun, you make a great tutor and ambassador to the Annie Sloan method! Great little shop too!"
Philippa Rogers

"As a complete beginner this workshop was good, it gave me some ideas and I learnt you can pretty much paint anything including shoes!"
Sarah Buck

"A brilliant course very well run by Steph. I learnt much more than I expected to and would highly recommend it."
Alison Osborne

"What a lovely day we have had! A great course, with lots of techniques and ideas to get started using the Annie Sloane product range, topped off by Steph's friendly and knowledgeable guidance. Thank you so much - Can't wait to get started putting it all into practice!"
Aude Espinasse

"A really great course which has given me the confidence to start painting my own furniture. I found the distressing technique helpful and will definitely experiment layering two colours in the future. A lot of information into the paints and techniques was provided and I had not realised how many waxes there are and the very different looks you can achieve by changing wax. A great course to inspire and give you the confidence to get going!"
Kirsty Locke

"Very well presented and instructed by Steph. Now inspired to "up-cycle" my Ducal furniture. Met some like minded folk with whom I will keep in touch and we are going to swop furniture that we don't need. Will keep in touch with Steph. and her La-di-da interiors shop and purchase more products for decorating my new kitchen. Very happy thank you."
Judith Norwood

"Been wanting to do this course for over a year and have lots of projects in our new house. So glad I did this course it's really shown me how to maximise the use of Annie Sloan paint... Thank you so much..."
Krysia Eddery

"Love the courses at La Di Da, they provide a great environment to learn the techniques in. Steph is friendly and professional in her approach. I have learnt loads and really enjoyed being able to find my creative spirit again."
Louise Wells

"I had looked at the adverts for this course a number of times before finally deciding to give it a go, and boy am I glad I did.
It is ideal for anyone new to upcycling as it not only teaches you the techniques you need to know, but also the short cuts, Steph is more than happy to share her wealth of knowledge during the morning. On the course I attended we seemed to spend most of our time having "light bulb moments" as our eyes were opened to just what could be achieved with Annie Sloan products. I would thoroughly recommend this course"
Sue Canavan 

"Stephanie was a superb teacher and I loved my intro to Annie Sloan painting techniques. Following on from the course I have gone on to do several projects.
I'd recommend anyone to this course for those who like me love restoring furniture but needed to know some techniques or if you just fancy trying something new!"
