2 day workshop with Anne Kelly

House and Home 7 & 8 December 10.30am – 4.30pm £150 includes light lunch (please let us know your dietary requirements)

In this two day course with author, artist and tutor Anne Kelly you will be working from your choice of house or place (building) that holds a special memory for you. We will start by using basic but effective techniques taken from her books. Anne will show you how to create a mixed media collage using items from your collections and charity shop finds. Your piece will be embellished and richly decorated to create a special souvenir or gift. It can be added to a larger piece at a later date if desired. A full list of materials and equipment will be sent to you prior to the workshop. Sewing machines are helpful but not essential.
