We’re an official supplier of Annie Sloan™ chalk paints and in 2021 we’ll be running a series of workshops that will combine the wonderful world of French flea markets and brocantes, Annie’s famed chalk paints, plenty of fresh air and a good dose of local wine and delicious home cooked food.
Flea markets and brocantes abound in this area and if you love a bargain, you will love bartering your best price for beautiful French linens, crockery and pre-loved furniture, perfect for ‘up-cycling’ with Annie’s chalk paints & wax. Joss will guide you round our local brocantes; you’ll wander, peruse and choose your preferred piece and we’ll bring it back to Zero Neuf for the start of the workshop.
During the course of the weekend, you’ll learn how to master the application and finish of the paints and wax and turn your tired piece of furniture into a statement piece fit for your home. Joss will be on hand to help you through the process and ensure you’re on top of the simple techniques.
Away from the workshop, you’ll delve further into life in the South of France. You’ll visit a local artisanal food market, enjoy cheese and wine-tastings and take walks in the countryside. You can switch off during a massage or facial and there’ll be plenty of ‘you time’ to simply kick back and relax with a glass of local wine or a dip in our swimming pool.
Arrival at ZeroNeuf, exhale and switch off. We’ll then serve a welcome apèro followed by dinner and drinks.
We’ll start the day with a delicious breakfast in Café Zero Neuf followed by a morning visit to a local brocante to purchase your furniture, and other finds that take your fancy. Once back at base, a light lunch will be followed by an afternoon in the workshop and the start of your chalk-painting journey. In the evening, you will enjoy a 3-course dinner and drinks at our favourite local restaurant.
In the morning you’ll continue in the workshop on your individual projects and after lunch there’ll be a countryside walk to stretch the legs and fill up the lungs with fresh Ariège air. The rest of the afternoon is yours to do as you wish, continue in the workshop, enjoy a massage or facial and relax, before wine-tasting with cheese and tapas in the bar.
Today will see the completion of your project, before some ’you time’, including your pre-booked massage/beauty treatment. In the evening, you will enjoy a 3-course dinner and drinks, served in the bar.
A visit to the beautiful medieval town of Mirepoix and its excellent market for your final morning and lunch in a terrific local restaurant before transfers back to your chosen airport and flights home.
