De Craftorij enough for looking after me so well this weekend, I had a wonderful time. Nothing was too much trouble and I was made to feel so welcome by everyone. Lucky for me that all the lovely people I taught this weekend speak very good English as my understanding of Dutch is non-existent!!!
I taught three classes this weekend, the first of which was an introduction to Pan Pastels, it was a fabulous class where all twenty students got to try all the colours of Pan Pastels with Crafters Workshop stencils, Paperartsy and Dina Wakley stamps. Silly, silly me, I forgot to take photographs in this class but believe me, they all did a great job.....it was a lot of fun.
Saturday morning, another full class of twenty people took my Street Life class. Lots of different products used in this project but it was mainly about the paint......Fresco Finish paint. We used the Crackle Glaze as well the regular colours on wood, Claudine Hellmuth's sticky back canvas and Tim Holtz Grungepaper. There were even some metal houses made from Ten Seconds Studio metal that got painted with the paint too. Everyone worked really hard and here are some of the results......sorry ladies if your project is not here, I couldn't possibly post pictures of all twenty!!!
Triple Decker was my third and final class on Sunday afternoon. It is based on my metal flowers using Ten Seconds Studio metal and tools and Paperartsy dies.
Last but not least......a little snoop around Lia's fabulous store.......they made me sign the wall that all visiting artists sign but guess who forgot to take a close up photo of the wall?????
I love the design of this shop, it is a modern building with some modern fixtures and fittings but it also has a wonderful vintage feel about it too.
So if you are ever in Holland, you need to make sure you take a trip to see Lia at her store, you will not be disappointed, I promise.
