ArtsyCrafts Teaser

Hellooooo!

Lots to tell you, but this post is all about ArtsyCrafts news. I've been getting loads of enquiries lately about the Autumn (October) ArtsyCrafts event. You guys are soooo keen! Well we do have news for you!
Well...almost news! Snippets of information follow below, but for now Lin and I have just spent the last 2 days together, planning our autumn classes (loving the projects...so far think metal, fabric, beads, stamps, wood, paint, inks, papers) If you are a twitter user you will already have seen some sneaky peeks of what is to come! (see the @paperartsy timeline or the @yoursartfully timeline) for you particularly nosey peeps.

{by the way..I think I might be in deep trouble for giving Lin's brand new studio shed a proper craft-christening ...I sprayed the white wall and stamped on the counter top....oops ...have offered to host next prep sesh in my re-vamped shed...not as posh in Essex tho innit? But SHE stamped archival on the wood stamp shelf - which was waaaaay worse than any of my indiscretions...so thinking I'm off the hook}
ArtsyCrafts in the autumn is going to be that little bit extra special. We have exciting news...but I am not going to tell you just quite yet..... suffice to say all the booking information should be online very very very soon.
For now I can let you in on these dates for your diary:
ArtsyCrafts October 2011 Dates

October 14, 15 16, 2011 will be at DeVere Daresbury Park, Near Warrington.
Our guest tutor will teach here all 3 days, and Lin and I will teach for 2 days as usual.
You can use Liverpool's John Lennon airport or Manchester Airport, both are only 20 mins from this venue. And located only 1 junction from the M6 motorway.

October 22, 23 2011 will be at DeVere Harben House, Newport Pagnell. This is near Milton Keynes, just off Jn14 of the M6, and about 30 mins drive from Luton Airport.
Lin and I alone will teach here, and it will be exactly the same curriculum as taught at Warrington

Tease Tease Tease.....
Those of you who attended the recent spring AC events will already know we have let slip that our Warrington guest tutor is an iconic muse for altered artists who has a unique style that fits beautifully with our ArtsyCrafts events. As an altered artist who works with paint, paper, stamps and more, she has a wealth of experience and I'm sure you will agree (when we tell you who she is), it will be a real privilege for you to have the opportunity to be a participant in her classes.

We are utterly thrilled that she has approached us with the idea of teaching at one of our events. We are beyond excited. With only 25 spaces per day available in her classes at the Warrington event - we can't wait to tell you who it is, and you will want to be there I am sure! This is her first time teaching in the UK (she's flying in) and she also is very very excited about it! Think you know who it is??? Enter the competition below!

So those hints should keep you guessing.... but for now, here is a taste of how much fun and creativity happens at our ArtsyCrafts events.

Previously at ArtsyCrafts.....
For those of you who missed the May/June (Spring) ArtsyCrafts events....and I know being so close to the Tim Holtz event...many of you did opt to skip it in favour of the October event.... here are 2 wonderful videos that Mark (@Mr_PaperArtsy) put together at the event showing the projects we made and the beautiful art in progress created by the spring participants.
The theme in June 2011 was Fresco Lifestyle with the emphasis on learning how versatile the new PaperArtsy Fresco Chalk Acrylics are as a paint. Specifically designed to work on ALL surfaces, we particularly love how they work so well on metal and even glass or ceramic! These paints have an amazing chalk finish which is an absolute dream to stamp on top of. The colours are totally on trend and very appealing. We are so thrilled that many established paint artists, you fantastic people from blog-land and loads of our loyal customers have commented on what a fabulous paint they are to work with, so we hope you too have had a chance to play with them also. You can see the full collection here, and coming soon will be the autumn/ Christmas palette. So grab a cuppa tea or coffee, kick back and enjoy the creativity of the spring 2011 ArtsyCrafts participants.
Day 1 ArtsyCrafts June 2011
