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.


We could all do with a touch of glitz and glamour in our lives. In this workshop we will be using chalk paint and gold leaf to up-cycle an ornate picture frame or mirror and turn an old book into a work of art worthy of coming out off the book shelf. You will learn how to handle and apply gold leaf in two different ways for two different looks and to use chalk paint on varied surfaces.

Suitable for: Ages 15+

Workshop Level:  Intermediate

What do I bring? An ornate mirror or picture frame & large old book. No tools needed! We will send you an email in the week leading up to your Workshop. Please keep an eye out for it (including in your Others or Trash folders).

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