Starting a Craft Techniques Class

Hi all, I have decided to start up a craft class, if anyone who lives  locally would like to come along please contact me on my Visitors Form on my website  or by email or via this blog.  The Classes will be held at The Pottery Loft in Billingham, Stockton - on - Tees, where the Stoney Oak used to be. You can check out their website Classes will be held on Thursday - the first one starts on 22nd September 2011 at 10.15 to 12.15. Price is £7.50 - I have to cover the cost of the hire of seats and will be providing the materials and equipment and there will be a free raffle every other week.

I know crafters like to gather together and there is a real lack of classes in my area.  It won't be a class where you get a card and some papers and you copy what I do - crafters have their own ideas or they wouldn't be crafters.  My class is all about teaching a variety of techniques that can be used in different ways on different projects and mixing and matching projects.  I.e. crossing over card making, jewellery making, scrapbooking, knitting, sewing etc.  I have cutting machines, embossing machines and a million and one ideas.  Once the crafters have learnt techniques or have played with differnt colouring mediums for stamps or have the know how to make a flat piece of paper jump off the card - they can then use those skills to come up with their own designs. This is a big step for me - but I am looking forward to it!  Wish me luck!
