SPRING 2018 MILK PAINT Workshops
We are proud to have partnered up with a local carpenter who brought our vision to life for all of these projects! My pal is amazing and his workmanship is top notch! For all of our workshops we are using eco-friendly milk paint that is made in Canada.

ABOUT OUR WORKSHOPS
If you have never used milk paint before - these workshops are perfect for you! If you are an experienced painter and just want to come and play paint - these workshops are for you too!
Our workshops will take the "mystery" out of working with milk paint so that you will have the confidence to paint your own furniture or whatever else your heart desires.
All workshops must be paid for in advance. You can reserve your spot on-line (below) or give us a call at 807.345.5059 to arrange a bank e-transfer.
- Absolutely everything you need! Walk in empty handed and leave with a finished piece.
- A light snack and beverages
Please remember to wear painting clothes.
All of our workshops are held at My Painted Door, 49 Clergue Street in Kakabeka Falls.
To ensure that everyone will get lots of personal attention and instruction, our workshops are limited to 6 participants.
I will try my best to fill your spot, but if I cannot fill it, a $50.00 non-refundable deposit will be retained.
