Furniture painting invite

This Fall, Sydney Harbour Paint Company is offering a series of creative new classes at their Melrose Avenue showroom, including a furniture painting class, a specialty finishes class, and a kid’s art class.

“We think this will be a fun and great way to engage the local community,” says Sydney Harbour co-owner Mahana Coleman. “We’ve done a few educational classes for trade professionals in the past, but as members of LCDQ, we want to reach out more to the design community specifically.”

Sydney Harbour’s Industry Exclusive Specialty Finishes course on September 19th will be geared toward designers, architects, contractors and other industry professionals. Mahana herself will lead the class and teach participants specific finish application guidelines. Attendees will receive their own handmade specialty fan deck and specifiers binder with application guidelines, and will also have the opportunity to do their own page sample of the finishes. The course will take place from 9 am to 10 am. The fee is $59.

In Furniture Painting, participants will learn how to transform a small piece of furniture using special paint techniques and tricks. All are invited to attend and will receive detailed product instruction, materials, and light refreshments. This course is offered September 6th and October 11th, from 10 am to 3 pm. The fee, which covers materials, is $80. Attendees must bring their own small furniture piece or home accessory to transform.

The Kids Art Class is scheduled for October 11th .
