We offer a range of workshops to suit all skill levels, whether you are a complete novice or an experienced furniture painter looking to learn a new technique.

All of our workshops take place at Humble Bee View, set in a beautiful rural location less than 20 minutes from Derby, Belper and Ashbourne. The classes are held in our first floor studio, which is a light-filled space with a balcony commanding views across the fields to Humble Bee Wood.

Classes are kept to a maximum of 6 to ensure everyone gets my full attention so that you get the very best out of your day in a relaxing environment.

Important information

We have plenty of free onsite parking.

All courses include drinks and light refreshments throughout. Some also include lunch. Please let us know in advance if you have any specific dietary requirements or intolerances.

Aprons will be provided, but please wear something old and casual that won’t matter if you spill any paint.  Please also wear flat, comfortable shoes.

We have disabled access and we are more than happy to accommodate your needs wherever possible. All we ask is that you advise us in advance and tell us what we need to do to make your day an enjoyable one.

Attendees of any course are entitled to 10% off any purchases of paint, WoodUbend and sundries on the day.
