I am constantly surprised by the rapidty with which the old
year passes away and the new one is upon us. December just
vanishes and here we are! A New Year! I quite like the idea of
"new" things happening with adventrues to embark on -
be they little or small.
With that sentiment in mind, I have set myself the task
of writing an online class as my first adventure for the year
and hope to get it up and runnning soon!
In the meantime here are some dates of classes I will be
holding through until May and if you have been wondering about
takingt the plunge and doing something new, I hope to see you
in the studio!
I will be in Berry , NSW in May and if you would like further
details on the 2 workshops I am running, then just email me here
Whatever you set out to do in 2016 I hope you have enormous fun
along the way
before Christmas I released a new product called my
"Sketchbook Panels!" I am really thrilled with the
response and have decided to run some new classes using them.
The class fee includes a panel of your choice.
This is an opportunity to gain several techniques inlcuding
embroidery, quilting, hand colouring and stencilling. Perfect for
turning into a quilt, a wall hanging, journal covers and more I am
really looking forward to seeing what people come up with!
