I think I may have mentioned before that we are beyond excited as we have a special guest for our event in Warrington and I am happy to confirm that it is now all systems go at Artsycrafts HQ to dot all the i's and cross all the t's in order for us to start taking bookings.
ArtsyCrafts October 2011 DatesOctober 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
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 artists who works with paint, paper, stamps and more, she has a wealth of experience and 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 approached us with the idea of teaching at one of our events. With only 25 spaces per day available in her classes at the Warrington event, we know that these will be snapped up quick as a flash so you will need to keep an eye out for the booking information which should go live on Leandra's website very soon.

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 put together at the event showing the projects we made.
Artsycrafts Day 1 June 2011
Artsycrafts Day 2 June 2011
The theme 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. And the colours are totally on trend and very appealing. We are so thrilled that many established paint artists, many fantastic people from blog-land, and loads of our loyal customers have commented on what a fabulous paint they are, so we hope you too have had a chance to play with them also. The full collection can be viewed on both my website and Leandra's and the exciting thing is that the range will be expanded soon to include a palette of colours suitable for Autumn and Christmas. So get yourself a cuppa tea or a glass of something nicer and take a little look into the world of Artsycrafts, I think you'll agree that it's a whole load of fun.
I know, I know we still have not told you who the mysterious guest artist is......well in true teasing style we are going to keep you guessing a bit longer. If you would like to leave a comment with your guess as to who the guest artist is, all the correct names will be put into a draw next weekend and the lucky winner will recieve their six Fresco Finish paints of their choice. We will then announce who the artist is and the date when booking will commence.
