Christmas Tray Painting & Craft Day Course 

17th November - £115

This course is designed and structured for students of all abilities to learn a basic understanding of a number of crafts, including, decoupage and gilding, using gold or silver leaf. Courses will be run by Simon Nobs, Director of Snobs Interiors Ltd., with over 30 years experience working as a specialist interior decorator and designer. We will start at 9.30am and aim to finish around 3.30pm. We will begin with a talk about the day and a brief discussion of the techniques involved, over tea and coffee. Simon will give a detailed explanation of the correct use of primers and basecoats to be applied to a variety of surfaces and we will then move on to prepare and begin decorating the trays. Simon will give a demonstration of some of the techniques that the students will be introduced to, the students will then be guided through the different stages used to create a beautiful and professional looking Christmas themed tray and then shown the correct use of varnishes to protect their work. To give you an idea of what is involved during the day, Simon has prepared a video, please visit my YouTube channel. The atmosphere will be relaxed and informal and there will be time through the day to ask Simon questions and advice on anything to do with decorating and design. The students can take home their finished trays and are encouraged to continue practising what they have learnt.


All materials and tools will be available to use throughout the day, and tray will be provided to all students to take home if you wish.

All students are asked to bring an apron or wear suitable clothing. Tea, coffee and light refreshments will be available throughout the day. Unfortunately we will not be able to cater for any special dietary requirements or allergies, so you are asked to please bring a packed lunch.


Maximum of 6 students per course & minimum of 3 student per course.

10% deposit required to secure your place on the course, with balance payable by bank transfer or cheque, before the course starts. Cards cannot be accepted.
