Meet the Instructor
For over 30 years I have been running Snobs Interiors - an interior design and decorating business with clients throughout the UK and across Europe. I provide a high quality painting and decorating service for my clients and for a number of years now I have been focusing much of my energy on the more artistic side of interior decoration.
There are fewer and fewer opportunities for those who would like to learn the ancient art of traditional decorative paint effect techniques from an experienced professional. As a result, age old skills such as woodgraining, faux marbling and broken colour paint effects are slowly being lost and forgotten.
To prevent these skills from disappearing altogether, I have carefully designed a number of comprehensive courses to enable anyone who has an interest in the craft to tackle the more challenging aspects of decorative paint techniques with confidence, even though they may have had no previous experience.
Granite & Sandstone Studio Course
A very nice and informative painting course with a pleasant and knowledgeable tutor
The day was very enjoyable, you taught us so much in a short space of time. I was quite nervous but you immediately put me at ease. I achieved an end result that far exceeded my expectations
Wood Graining Studio Course
Great fun and set in a very calm, quiet studio. Simon was very knowledgeable and I was happy with the paint effect I produced. I would be confident in performing the technique again.
