Decoupage For Beginners

Micklems Farm | West Berkshire Villages

You will learn how to decoupage several items i.e bottle, glass, jar. The end results make wonderful gifts or they’re equally lovely to keep for yourself. You will be using Frenchic chalk & mineral paint. If you have any small items that you would like to decoupage then feel free to bring them along, otherwise there will be a selection of items for you to choose from on the day.

Event Status- Current

Following government announcements, we will be reopening on Monday 17th May. We have contacted all students who had booked onto rescheduled workshops, if you have booked and haven’t received the email then please check your junk. If you are booked to attend a workshop then you will be offered the opportunity to hold

your place until it’s rescheduled or a refund. If you hold your place and cannot attend the new date then you will be offered a refund or the opportunity to book onto another workshop. If you have booked using a gift card, you will be offered the opportunity to hold your place until the new date is announced or a credit note.

Over the first lockdown, we spent time implementing various measures to make our studio as safe as possible for our students and tutors.

With just under 1000 sq ft of floor space, a new large demo area with a wall mounted monitor allows students to be socially distanced during tutor demonstrations

and our ten work stations are now set further apart with more open flow areas in the centre of the studio.

We have a central hands-free hand sanitising station which students and tutors use upon entry and throughout the day.

We use our very own fogging system using anti-viral disinfectant (tested against Coronavirus) after every workshop.

We are providing disposable cutlery at the tea and coffee station and paper hand towels for hand washing. We ask students to bring their own mugs and face masks.

As far as the weather allows, the large patio doors onto the garden will be kept open and we will have tables and chairs for eating lunch outside.

Students and tutors will be able to use our open plan kitchen/dining space and large conservatory to enjoy their lunch socially distanced and as the weather gets warmer we’ll have marquees erected in the grounds for students to use.

We hope that these measures will reassure you that we have done as much as we can to ensure your safety when attending workshops.

    Paradise Lost (Lies Unopened Beside Me)

    There is a possibility that God made everything because he was terrified of doing nothing. Here is a re-telling of the story of the beginning of everything inspired by Milton's Paradise Lost - told through words, music and the easily misunderstood medium of dance. A show for anyone who has created anything (child, garden, paper aeroplane) and then watched it spiral out of control.

    Paradise Lost (lies unopened beside me) is a one-man adaptation of Milton’s epic poem and is conceived, directed and performed by Ben Duke for Lost Dog. The show premiered in May 2015 at Battersea Arts Centre, London as part of A Nation’s Theatre and went on to run at Summerhall as part the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in August 2015 where it received high critical acclaim.

    Paradise Lost was shortlisted for a 2015 Total Theatre Award in the Innovation, Experimentation and Playing with Form category and Ben Duke won the 2015 National Dance Award for Outstanding Male Performance. Since 2015 the show has toured to over 60 venues both nationally and internationally including 14 village halls as part of the Rural Touring Dance Initiative. In 2019 The Guardian named Paradise Lost (lies unopened beside me) in its list of the Top Ten Dance Performances of the 21st Century.
