An afternoon with Jonathon Marc Mendes - watch, learn and be entertained by world renowned furniture painter and all round nice guy, Jonathan!


2 - 5 pm Sunday 22nd May 2022 


The Warehouse r/o 83 High Street Burton on Trent Staffordshire DE14 1LD

Tell me more!
Watch Jonathon live on stage showcasing his talent for faded grandeur, love of colour theory and a peek into his world, successes and humour. We’re giving you the chance to watch the master at work and observe a project from start to finish at an intimate setting in Burton-Upon-Trent. This is the perfect event to see products being used up close and learn from the best, whilst surrounded by fellow furniture painters, upcyclers and crafters!

The afternoon will be a demonstration of Jonathon's unique techniques, with audience participation. Get a closer look at his new decoupage papers (created in partnership with Posh Chalk) and an EXCLUSIVE look at his (yet to be announced!) new products. 

But that’s not all, we have a surprise guest joining Jonathon on stage, AND owner of Shabby Nook/ Posh Chalk Distributor for the UK & Ireland, Shereena Starmer, will also be on hand with her invaluable expertise and insight! Attendees will have the opportunity to shop with Shabby Nook after the event instore or online. 10% off everything on the day.

Light refreshments, including a glass of bubbly on arrival will be provided.

Pre-covid, the upcycling community was thriving, with lots of events to attend to connect with other like-minded people and the opportunity to learn about the latest techniques and products. Shabby Nook are thrilled to be holding in-person events again this year. Virtual events may have seen us through the various lockdowns but they can’t replicate the energy, joy, and human connection of the real thing. Plus there are no distractions from email notifications, pop-ups and low battery alerts! Seeing a furniture artist at work in real time with no editing gives you a much deeper understanding of what goes into creating beautiful upcycled furniture. And a great opportunity to network but most of all, an afternoon of fun and inspiration. 

The event will be held at The Warehouse r/o 83 High Street Burton on Trent Staffordshire DE14 1LD. A hall belonging to my church (Riverside Church which is next door)- this is really handy venue as it is just behind Shabby Nook and can offer a lot more space for events!

The venue has disabled access and a disabled toilet. 

Whether you’re an experienced furniture painter or have just dipped your toes into the wonderful world of crafting, or fancy a meet up with friends for something different. This is a brilliant opportunity to learn, grow and have lots of fun!

Tickets are limited and we expect this event to be very popular.

We can’t wait to welcome you at this event!

Tickets cost £40 for 1, or bring a friend and get a discount with 2 tickets for £75!
