Chalk Paint Workshop

Posted on 9 August, 2017 at 6:00

Balance of Life holds regular Chalk Paint workshops in the art studio amongst the tranquil settings of a Darawank property, just several minutes from the heart of Forster/Tuncurry and only 20mins from Taree. The next workshop is being held on 9th September and places are limited.

You will learn the art of chalk painting in a practical way so we ask you to bring along a tired or dated small to medium piece of furniture or homeware such as picture/mirror frames, clocks, baskets, boxes, vases. You will have it revamped into a stunning piece you will be proud to display, by the end of the workshop. All equipment and paint is provided to complete your work on site in our studio. Should you wish to purchase chalk paint to take home, we also carry stock of some of the most popular colours, alternatively if you find you want to purchase a colour that is not available it can be ordered for you.

Cost is $55.00 / head and price includes four hours of pure creativity and fun with some likeminded sorts, a yummy lunch and a glass of bubbles. Plus, 10% of the sale, will be donated to the Great Lakes Woman's Shelter where I volunteer my time, a cause I am very passionate about.

If this sounds like where you’d like to spend your afternoon on Saturday 9th September 2017, secure your place now. Workshops tend to fill up quickly!

Hope to see you there.  Please send your booking request, or enquiry via the contact page on this website.


2017 Resolutions

Posted on 8 January, 2017 at 18:40

“Laugh often and much

Win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children

Earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends;

Appreciate beauty, to find the best in others;

Leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition;

Know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived.

This is to have succeeded…… “

Ralph Waldo Emerson
