An ArtsyCrafts Class with ........who?????

Once upon a time Lin Brown (LB Crafts) and Leandra Franich (PaperArtsy) taught a class together, and had so much fun they decided they should do it more often, and regularly! Shortly after they gave birth to their joint altered art event and called it ArtsyCrafts. Over the last 3 years, they have organised more than 14  weekend or day-retreat events of the highest calibre with the focus on stamping, metal working, and mixed media classes. Their passion is to teach you awesome techniques with the products they love best.

But this week is special. You have seen all the hints on twitter, facebook and the blogs....it's true.... Lin and Leandra have some really big news breaking tonight. As they enter their 4th year of ArtsyCrafts events....they are thrilled to bring you Tim Holtz as a guest tutor in February 2011.
Tim has kindly accepted the challenge to come and teach a totally awesome doozy of a class, the sort of class that we have not before had the opportunity to participate in here in England.....so this is it ladies and gentlemen, the opportunity for you to take part in learning directly from Tim himself in a masterclass using Tim Holtz products from his signature ranges which you know and love to use: Ideology, Tim Holtz stamps, Ranger inks and paints, Sizzix dies and oh so much more. It is going to be the class of the year.

In Tim's own words, just for you:
Imagine a place where your creative visions can be displayed for the world to see...discover configurations!  These dimensional and completely customizable shadow boxes can be configured to share your creative thoughts and artful treasures just the way you want. Learn techniques on collaging, distressing with inks, paints, and more using a variety of Ranger products as you assemble this one of a kind creation.  You'll be supplied with ephemera, trinkets, and found objects to feed your altered desires.  The time has come to create the configuration of your imagination that's as unique as you...


Not only will you have 4 wonderful hours of creative opportunity with Tim, but also you will have a 2 hour class with Lin and Leandra who will share their unique techniques with Ten Seconds Studio metal, PaperArtsy Stamps, Ranger products and embellished with our most favourite of Tim's products.

On site we will have a shop stocked with all the items used in class so you have the chance to get your hands on the latest and greatest products used in class, and some of those hard-to-get-in-the-UK items.  We will be pulling all the strings we can to make sure it's all there for your shopping enjoyment!
