Joan Osborne has been holding her unique “Painting Plants and Flowers” classes at Greyfriars for over 27 years but has decided that the time is right to put away her easel, certainly in a teaching capacity.

Although not initially a teacher but a very keen artist, over the years Joan has not only taught classes at the centre but held workshops where students could join her for a day of tuition. The popular classes will be missed by all.

On the 27th June , Gillian Habbin, Greyfriars’  President, presented Joan with a basket of spring flowers to thank her for her loyalty and contribution to the centre.

We wish Joan a very Happy Retirement from all at Greyfriars.
