Last few classes

I really do need more hours in the day!
Do you?

After thinking long and hard I have decided to stop teaching after my last class on the 6th of September 2014. (UPDATE ** I'm back teaching in 2015:))
Work is pretty demanding at 50 hours per week, and I'm finding it harder and harder to get into the craft room, when all I want to do is get into bed!

I haven't made anything that was not for a class in ages. 
So I'm hoping this move will give me the freedom to make more for me and the blog :)
So watch out for the return of some walkthroughs and some general ramblings. x

My next classes are:-

On Sat 26th & Sun 27th July (this weekend!) at Wynyard in Teesside
Two mixed media projects
Some sneaky peeks below







There are a couple of spaces left due to cancellations so if you'd like to join in, then please come along, I'd love to see you there. 
Contact me on shelleygeo@googlemail.com or Sue Tucker at sue.tucker1@btopenworld.com and we'll get you on one or both the days.

Also check out the Art Workshops Facebook page for other classes being held at Wynyard, in Teesside

Altered Book workshop

On Saturday 2nd August is my Altered Book workshop at Art from the Heart in Harrogate

Turn those old Reader’s Digest books into something more interesting to look at! Alter them with lovely layers of paints, inks, fabric, ephemera and findings. This may look like a book on the shelf but when you open it, there is a hit of colour and lots of creative interest to look at. You’ll learn how to glue all your pages together and cut out the inside, adding paint and mediums to change the look of the book pages. Then adding some crafty bits n bobs to hide in the cut outs. A wonderful keepsake to hide on your bookshelf.

Colour Theory Workshop


On Saturday 23rd August 

Colour Theory Workshop at Art from the Heart in Harrogate

You’ll learn all aspects of colour theory which can be applied to all you’re crafting from card making to painting mixed-media and journal pages. We’ll make a colour chart and learn all about their hues and shades, make our own colour wheel, and understand what analogous and complimentary colours are. We’ll then put all this knowledge into practice and make some creative samples too, for you to keep and refer back to. You’ll never be stuck again wondering which colour to use, or how to make a colour you don’t have.
