Just thought I would give you a bit of info on some of the classes coming up at the studio.

Tomorrow is your chance to recreate one of my journal pages.

Fri 11th Nov - Dy’s Journal pages - 10-3pm

A chance to be taken step by step through one of Dyan’s multi layered journal pages. Starting with inks and a gesso resist we will slowly start to add depth to the layers, you will learn many techniques along the way, including colour, collage and composition, all the time maintaining your own style. We will be inking , gessoing, spraying, stencilling, stamping, painting, cutting sticking and embellishing.

Our Price: £20.00  Book HERE

Next up is the fabulous ABC Primer from Graphic 45


Sat 12th Nov - Graphic 45 ABC Primer double gate fold album - 10-4pm

The quality of these papers is superb, a real traditional back to school theme for kids and grown ups alike. This album has a real quirky way of unfolding, first one side and then the other to reveal page after page of delight. Pockets, tags, envelope, and more and more.
Our Price: £35.00  Book HERE

Another Graphic 45 treat for of my famous pocketed star books

Tues 15th Nov - Wizard of Oz Star book - 10-3pm

Star books are one of our most popular classes in all the years I have been teaching and I am sure this one will prove to be no exception. Graphic 45 have done it again with their stunning release of the Wizard of Oz. I don’t think there’s many of us who don’t secretly melt at the thought of watching it again and again!! Every page is pocketed so you can store all those precious memories that ensure “ there’s no place like home”.!!

Our Price: £30.00 Book HERE

And on Tuesday one of my taggy technique journals

Wed 16th Nov - Technique journal - 10-3pm

It maybe that you are well experienced in the creative delights of paint and inks, or it may be the opposite and you are a complete beginner. Either way this is the workshop for you. To me, the best journals are those made from scratch with love! Therefore we will start by making the pages, playing with inks, sprays, paints ets in various ways for stunning effects. We will then mix them with lined papers to make a hard back journal with a canvas binding. The addition of tags, envelopes, files and doodling ensures that you can really put your own personal stamp on it.

Our Price: £25.00 Book HERE

I also want to tell you about my last weekend workshop of the year. This is the altered book weekend, and is suitable for those dipping their toe into the journaling pond, as well

Fri/Sat/Sun 2/3/4th Dec - Altered book weekend - 7.30 – 10pm/9.30-5pm/9.30-4pm

After repeated requests and dozens of desperate pleas, lol, I have managed to squeeze in a weekend of altering. We will be taking an old book, making a hidden drawer, folded pages, hidden pockets, layering techniques, windows, flaps, tags and pull outs. You will experience techniques galore and have a ball putting them into practise. Painting, inking, spraying, folding, pleating, layering, cutting, hiding, doodling, stamping, colouring, eating, drinking, chatting, laughing and generally having a ball.
 Snacks and lunch on both days included

Our Price: £150.00 Book HERE

And I will leave you with a page from The Ledger

Enjoy xx
