Joan O'Shea

DIY Paint
Originally from Canberra, Joan has come from a teaching background with moulded Ceramics, Quilting and now furniture rehabilitation, using Chalk Paint. Her past 18 years in Gympie has seen her further develop her style and love of anything ‘old & neglected.’ She lovingly transforms these pieces into eclectic works of art, with her infusion of French. Joan comes with a wealth of knowledge in design and colour.


Course will cover basic techniques of using chalk paint and wax. Bring a small piece of furniture (too big and you may not get it finished) something you can fit in the back seat of your car, about the size of a chair. Make sure your piece is clean and ready to paint but no need to sand. Paint, wax and brushes included.

Wear your paint clothes….aprons can be provided.

Suitable for: Ages 15+

Workshop Level:  Beginner

What do I bring? You will be provided with a full list after purchasing your ticket

Cancellations: Cancellations 30 days out will receive full refund; 14 days out will receive 50% refund; cancellations 7 days out will forfeit full payment.
