Welcome to Water Lane Workshops
We run creative day courses from a beautiful barn in the Cotswolds.
It’s perfect for anyone who wants to spend a day learning a new skill whilst relaxing and enjoying some ‘me’ time.
We have furniture painting with our own fabulous china clay paints, lampshade making, planting design, needlepoint and wreath making at Christmas.
With a delicious lunch as well as tea, coffee and homemade cakes you leave the day feeling refreshed and inspired!
If you are interested to find out more we would love to hear from you.
I feel so lucky that a friend recommended Water Lane Workshops to me – I registered without hesitation to do the Furniture Painting course which takes place at a fantastic restored Cotswold stone barn in the grounds of Water Lane Farm. The course was perfectly timed as would fit in around drop-off and pick-up of my children from School. During the day, we were instructed by the amazing Clive who is a Furniture Restorer of note, on how to up-cycle our rather forlorn, pre-loved pieces of furniture, into pieces that were completely transformed.
The old desk I resurrected is now in pride of place in my study, and since that day, I have painted my son’s bedroom furniture and my kitchen dresser. The heritage paint Kate has lovingly breathed new life into is a revelation – it dries super quick and has a wonderful chalky finish – and has proved very robust. I have had no hesitation in recommending the course to other friends who I know have equally found it incredibly rewarding. Hannah
