Do you want to learn how to design rooms in the patina style? Now we have the perfect online interior design course for you.

As you probably know, FARRAGOZ  is all about authentic looking patina and how to recreate it. Up to now, we have offered patina furniture painting courses, but we have decided to take it to the next level by creating the Patina DECOR Course.

This course consists of 48 "jobs". Every week you will receive access to a new job. Some jobs take 2 weeks. But you don't have to do all the jobs - just the ones you have time for. You can always come back to them later. And there are also interesting exercises to help you learn about colour, light, tone, history and writing.

You can work at your own pace at home and take as long as you like because you get lifetime access and support. 

Each job will take you from the brief, to site plans to layouts to style choices to perspective drawings to a presentation with samples just like you would for a real client. You even have job cards for each job for quotes from real companies. The jobs are varied. You can pretend to be a jet-setting designer doing exciting jobs for interesting clients all over the world. One week you will design a dressing room for a chateau, the next a trade show exhibition stand for an art dealer. Then a window display for a shoe shop.  Head over to this page to see all the different jobs.

You do not need any experience at all. You do not need to know how to draw. You can be 10 years old or 100 years old. We have designed a course that is super easy to follow with lots of training wheels.

We also do not want you to be alone. Therefore, you will be added to a private group on our site where you can chat with other students and upload your progress. It helps to connect with others to stay motivated. The main thing is to do a tiny bit regularly and keep it fun. 

To make it affordable for most people, we offer a 10-month payment plan. So rather than paying $150 up front, you have 10 months to pay it off at $15 each month.

Do you have any questions regarding this course or any of our other courses? We would love to chat with you on our LiveChat in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen.

FARRAGOZ has a fun Patina PLATES Course

We recently added a new, short, hobby course to our existing FARRAGOZ Patina Online Courses. It is called the FARRAGOZ Patina PLATES Course and is somewhat different to our other courses. 

Here are the answers to some of the questions people have asked about this new course.

What is different about this course? 

Well, it is not a furniture paint course like our other online courses. This is a less serious course and is designed for people who like to have fun with crafts and want to create decor items that have an old-world look, on a shoestring budget.

What will I make in this course?

You will upcycle those ugly cracked plates in the back of your crockery cupboard to create 9 different decorative plates. They look fabulous when hung together as a collection or make wonderful gifts.

Do I need any experience? 

No, not at all! You just need to follow the easy step-by-step instructions and videos on how to decoupage a plate by making your own glue and paint using traditional recipes.

Do I need any specific branded products?

Again, no! My guess is you already have most of the inexpensive materials in your kitchen or workroom.

Do you supply the images to be decoupaged?

Yes, we supply the 9 images for the fronts, the image for the backing plus a label for you to download and print.

Because this is an online course, will I need to sign in at a specific time to get the lessons?

No. You can access the coursework whenever you feel creative and you can work at your own pace.

So, does this mean I'm going to be working in isolation?

Oh, not at all! You will be added to a support group where you will be able to chat with the other students in the group, exchanging ideas and tips.

Would I be able to make multiples to sell in my booth or Etsy shop?

Yes, of course! We would love to see you make an extra income from these. Make and sell as many as you like!

We look forward to seeing you on the group support page soon!
