Dooney & Daughters Learning Centre

Check Out Our Learning Centre!

Welcome to our Learning Centre, a single place to access all of our tips, how-to videos, workshops and paint recipes.

We love the creativity and satisfaction we get from transforming an old piece of furniture using premium chalk paint, transfers, mouldings and stencils and want to share our knowledge and expertise with you.

First up in our Learning Centre are our workshops and events. This will be updated regularly as workshop dates and demonstrations become available. Our workshops are run on Sundays and are a fun and hands-on way to learn all about premium chalk paint, waxes and metallics. They're designed so that once you get home you're inspired, ready and confident to attack your next project. Our demonstrations are normally during weekdays where Nicolette shows how to use a specific product or technique.

Next up are the Artisan Paint Recipes. These have been made by The Artisan Company and come with full instructions so you can replicate the finish on your own furniture. They're a great way to try different techniques and colour combinations that you know will work! We also have examples of these in our Remuera shop with printed cards for you to take home.

Lastly, we have our How-To Videos. These will be added to regularly to show different tips, paint techniques and finishes. We'll try to keep them short and informative and if you would like something covered, please let us know!

We hope our Learning Centre inspires you to pick up a paintbrush, and as always, if you have any questions please call, email or pop-in.
