To get an idea of what we have done at ArtsyCrafts events in the past, please take a look here at samples of some of the art that has been made at previous events. ArtsyCrafts is a partnership event between Linda Brown of LB Crafts, and Leandra Franich of PaperArtsy. Consequently the focus is always PaperArtsy stamps and Ten Seconds Studio metal working ideas. We incorporate other products that we love like paint, ink, alcohol ink, dye sprays, wooden items, canvas...well there is quite a lot we like to work with and on!

Lin and Leandra both have fabulous reputations for teaching beautiful projects with innovative techniques they have developed themselves or have learned from other crafting specialists. This is likely to be an event unlike any other you have been to.We get praised for our smooth and thorough organisation, the perfect working pace, the outstanding and well taught projects, the thorough notes we provide for your own future reference, the great colour-choice options on offer for each session, and the large number of supplies available means you are not waiting to use anything for long. After running this event since 2008, we have figured out what people want and how to deliver just that!

We really hope you can make it to one of these dates.......the botanical-inspired theme is a totally fabulous's going to be superb!!! We have lots of new colour combos to tempt you:herb garden, Java jade, hardwood floor, cloudy skies, peacock, citrus sorbet, plum crumble, apple blossom and fruit salad!
