We have had to make some changes to our original March plans as.....big daughter, Sarah announced the date for her wedding at the end of March.....I am so excited and so here is the new plan.

We have three events scheduled for the first half of 2010

March 13/14 2010 at DeVere Daresbury Park, Warrington (nr Manchester)

This is a one weekend only "Best of" Artsycrafts event. This will include the fabulous Gothic Arch with a new twist, plus the most popular classes from our 2008 Artsycrafts events.

This event is going to be perfect for people who missed our first ever AC classes in 2008, or for those of you who have never attended an AC event before PLUS it's happening in the North of England, so those of you living up that way won't have so far to travel! The venue is superb, 4 Star accommodation, has a healthy food restaurant, wireless internet throughout and a really nice large room to work in, easy access from the motorway, and only 20 mins from both Manchester Airport and Liverpool's John Lennon airport.

None of the classes will be exactly the same as previously taught, so even though the event is based on prior classes, all of the projects will involve different stamps and twists on techniques to keep it fresh.

Techniques you will learn:

. Metal embossing (Cuttlebug and moulds)

. Stamping on metal

. Sanding metal

. Adhesive metal

. Alcohol inks on metal

. Making a metal frame from a wooden substrate

. Stamping/colouring fabric

. Terra texture with Kaiser colour paint

. The Leandra bead from UTEE (ultra thick embossing enamel)

. New curriculum based on the theme "Flights of Fancy" developed by Linda Brown (L.B.Crafts) and Leandra Franich (PaperArtsy)

. Plenty of innovative techniques to learn in every session using metal, stamps paints etc.

The Price for every weekend is £275.00. This includes

. Use of plentiful class supplies(stamps, inks, paints, etc)

. Prepared class project kits (items to make your projects)
