I'm so excited to be teaching at Elements in September. It's being organised by Paddy Cosgriff of Paddy's Stamping Place in Prestwich, Manchester. Paddy owns a quirky little shop on Butterstile Lane, Prestwich which sells the most amazing items for the mixed media artist. I have learnt a lot from Paddy over the years and am so thrilled to be involved with her first mixed-media crafting weekend. We've got such a diverse mix of ingredients within our project that the techniques being taught are very varied and up to the minute.
There are 6 tutors in total, and each tutor is focusing on a different 'element' of the piece. Becca Balazs is working with fabric. She owns 'Becca's Quilt Emporium' in Dorset and hosted our corset display last year (see my post here).
Then there's Neet Hickson who will be teaching techniques with makin's clay. Neet does a lot of wonderful work with clay of all types, and teaches regularly at Paddy's Stamping Place.
Kay Halliwell-Sutton is another regular tutor at the shop who does brilliant workshops with mdf pieces. And last, but not least, I will be working with perspex, Paddy with metal, and my great friend Helen Jackson with mixed media.
I LoVe teaching workshops and have just come home from teaching for two days at Wendy's Stamp Attic. I'll get those pics posted for you seeon as it was a fabulous weekend, and I found my cable - YAY! It had been appropriated by my 15 year old son!!!
