Event 1: Gothic Arch, Sunday November 23rd, 9am-5pm.
At our first ArtsyCrafts weekend event in early September, this arch was so popular that we have had requests from many people who missed the weekend and even those who did attend, to teach this stunning class again. Here is your chance to come to a great one day masterclass

Event 2: Altered Arts Weekend Event, March 21 & 22, 2009
Another great weekend opportunity to learn loads of stamping, metal working and altered arts techniques. For beginners and experienced alike, the most important thing to bring is a pair of non-stick scissors. We'll provide all the other supplies you need! Yes really!
Linda Brown (LB Crafts) and Leandra Franich (PaperArtsy) are both innovative, experienced teachers who will teach you many ideas with stamps, metal, paints, inks, glimmer mists and beyond! We will explore many techniques across a variety of projects and surfaces which will leave you excited and confident to incorporate these ideas on all kinds of other items you make in the future.
