get sorted for 2012

I have been working on a teaching calendar for 2012. Calf House Artists have met to fix dates for Summer school etc. and so I can tell that I will be teaching summer school in July AND August. If you can't wait that long then here is an image from my Club Class group, these guys meet on Wednesdays for just two hours. Here is last weeks project.

The idea was to learn about masking and wet in wet water colour techniques. I do like to show them something they haven't tried before or get them to re visit products they haven't used recently.

As they come every week they tend to be the folks who get to see what's new round here first plus they get at least 10% off everything they buy at the studio, and chance to book other workshops ahead of the crowd, now you know why they call it VIP Club Class.

Make it Pink projects

Well eventually download the photos from last weekend to my computer.
Here are a few images of the alcohol ink project from the Make it Pink day. I think I can safely say all who tried it love it and for most alcohol inks were a new product to try.

Making it PINK!

This weekend we held our regular MAKE IT ! PINK! in aid of breast cancer charities. You propably know that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and we generally celebrate with Pinks Fridays that inevitably spill over into Saturdays for the those folks have to work on Fridays.
My usual format was in Place £1 gets a cup of tea or coffee with a bun suitable iced in stunning pink!
The Craft folks gets to make a project if they prefer which costs them £5. All the £1 and £5 go to the charity.
This time we did two projects one of new crafters who got to explore chalks and one for more established crafters who got to add colour to acetate either with Alcohol inks or staz on.
I have taken photos but can't seem to access them at the moment so will have to post them later.
