Join Designers Guild store design consultants for this hour and a half workshop and immerse yourself in colour. The class will help you discover & hone the styles that really work for you, through the exploration of colour, paint, texture, and pattern. The Designers Guild team will guide participants through the often-tricky process of creating a moodboard, advise on how best to collate ideas and crucially, provide tips on how to create that perfect colour palette.
Designers Guild Paint consultants will help you find your perfect palette and suggest ways to avoid some of the most common pitfalls when choosing the right shade for a space or room. Paint is the ultimate building block when starting a decorating scheme whether you prefer statement making or simple and pared back. With over 180 colours to choose from they are sure to help you select the perfect hue for you and your latest interior project! Adults of all abilities and skill levels are welcome.
Founded by Tricia Guild OBE, Designers Guild started life in 1970 as a small section of a single shop in Chelsea’s Kings Road. The brand has since evolved and grown into a global enterprise, whose products have changed the way we view colour, pattern and texture in our homes. Tickets to the workshop include entry to the current exhibition Out of the Blue: Fifty Years of Designers Guild celebrating the work of this influential design company.
Price: £30 includes equipment and exhibition entry.
