My first ever hero in the art world, was the wonderful Claudine Hellmuth. I just loved all her background techniques and her style, slightly cooky but unique and fun..!!! I remember the first time I met her, I was soooooo excited I could hardly breathe, lol.. When the bosses at Ranger told me she was developing a line with them, I was over the moon that I would get to work alongside her, and use her products. It is a great honour that she is coming to teach at my studio, and I am soooooo excited (can you tell..??). So is she....., it will be her first time teaching in the UK, so I hope we don't frighten her off with our Britishness..!!!! Places are severely limited and registration DOESN'T open until noon tomorrow. Plus I am having nothing to do with it, so don't ask...as you know Ben is the origina l" Mr Unbribeable ", and this is the only fair way to allocate places.

We are very excited to announce that for the first time ever Claudine Hellmuth is coming over to England to teach and yes you've guessed right she's coming to Art from the Heart!!
Claudine is teaching 2 workshops over 2 days.
The first workshop is called - Collage Discovery Workshop and is a full day class on the 18th Feb. It is also her most popular class. Details can be found - HERE
The second workshop is called - Adventures in Colour and is a half day course on the 19th Feb. Details can be found - HERE
Workshops will go live at 12:00pm on Friday 8th Jan and are limited to 16 people per class. As numbers will be limited we will ask you to only book onto one of the classes, so as many people as possible will be able to be taught by Claudine. We will also be restricting the bookings to 2 per person, credit card and household, so that everyone will get a fair chance to get a place. Places will be booked on a first come, first serve basis and will need to booked through the website only.
Book quick as these workshops will be a sellout!
And if you think spaces arent spare, then get this. I,m not allowed a place...!! How bad is that..??? Mind you I do get to receive her tuition at other times..Still won,t stop me sulking though..!!! lmao
Still not sorted out my upload problem, just fast running out of time, all the time. But I will get on to it, as I've tons to show you.
We are all working like mad at the mo, packing kits for the Fabby Dabby this weekend.Even James has become a dab hand with the trimmer, lol. Got some great projects, but can't uploadm lol, so I will have to leave you in suspense...ha ha ..
Also just confirmed my flight details for CHA in Anaheim. Yes I am packing my bags again..!!! I am once more demoing on the Ranger Booth at the Winter trade show, with all my Ranger pals...Yayyy, I love to mix work and pleasure. Our Ben is coming as well, to walk the show, and keep me from buying everything in site..!!! I hopefully will be keeping you all onformed with all the new and exciting products on the market. The Ranger new releases have me wetting my pants already and the order is being compiled as we speak. Tim's new releases are fabby, as you would expect, and the new Gypsy range is to die for. I will be stuffing my suitcase as full as I can at every opportunity, because you know what I,m like, I want it and I want it NOW..!!!
