Nov 16 - Our very first stencil workshop, the project, to make, paint and decorate a small wooden tree for the festive season. We provided all the ingredients, demo'd the method and then let our lovely ladies loose to create their own version with paints, power tools and, of course, some fabulous stencils..

All ready to go..

Stencil a tree workshop at The Stencil Studio Ltd, all the materials stacked and ready to go.

After a quick demo the girls got sanding and painting their trees, we used chalk paints for this, providing a lovely matt base for stenciling.

The Scandi Robins from our New Stencil MiNiS collection were very popular with their little patterned breast.

Carefully applying the paint. As with all stenciling projects, the rule is to never use too much paint. A flat ended stencil brush ensures the paint doesn't spread beneath the stencil.

A quick bit of power tooling and they're up! The first finished trees emerge and they look brilliant.

Some 'people' found the whole event very tiring!
