Mine is really busy as I'm trying to close the details of my teaching schedule for this year... loads of emails were sent - so if you are especially from Canada/USA part of the world watch this space in the next weeks!
Today I have a special treat.
It is rare I'm able to teach classes in the place or even the country I live in, so I'm very happy to announce we were able to organize an event in Newbridge, Co. Kildare - some of you may already know this location from my previous classes in this area. (Before some of you will ask - there won't be any other classes organized in Ireland until 2016 - I'm sorry, but my schedule is brutal!)
We will do our best to make this weekend fun for you - you can expect not only 4 mixed-media classes based on my techniques and product lines from Prima Marketing but also small goodie bags waiting for each student, a chance to do some shopping in our Mixed Media Place Store and chance to win some prizes!
