Finnabairs Classes

Under Finnabairs excellent and inspiring teaching our ladies have had the opportunity to created amazing canvases and layouts. They have had the chance to experience a wide range of mixed media products and learn so many techniques their heads must be still spinning. I had a chance  to wander around the class room. I so enjoyed watching their wonder and delight as their projects came together and as the final touches were added. Finnabair is the most amazing and generous teacher I have had the pleasure of watching. Her beautiful collage style of artistry is amazing and to watch her work and weave her magic is inspiring. We are so thankful she came to Adelaide and taught in our store, we all wish her the best for the rest of her Australia tour and hope she returns soon.


Class 1 - Overemotional Canvas



Class 2 - Rich & Textured


Class 3 - The Artefact Canvas




 Class 4 - Scraps of Memories

Four sleeps to go until Finnabair arrives.

Hello Everyone
Only 4 sleeps to go until Finnabair arrives. Nat spent a day last week getting her kits all ready for her classes. I had a quick look and was very impressed with the amount of Prima products in each kit. Finnabair is teaching Friday the 13th & Saturday 14th of  November.
We only have 2 spaces in her Overemotional Canvas -Friday morning and 1 space in her Rich and Textured layout in the afternoon. Her Overemotional Canvas has been booked out for over 2 months now, but we had two late cancellations over the weekend so if you were wanting to do this class then don't miss out.
Saturday Mornings Artifact canvas class has two spots with her afternoon class booked out.
We are very delighted to have her teaching exclusively for us. It is not often that international teachers of her ability come to Adelaide, so this is a great opportunity for you to join us and do one of Finnabair's amazing workshops.
You will need to ring the store to book in.
For those already attending, don't forget to check our blog for a list of items you will need for each of the classes you are attending. Please make sure you are in our store before class starting times so we can get you seated and make a prompt start. If you are attending for a full day -  then please help us by parking in the street rather than in our car park also remember I am providing lunch for those staying all day.
 Having been planning this event for months now, I can't believe that it is really happening.
So only four sleeps to go until Finnabair's amazing creativity is shared with us here  in Adelaide.
PS if you don't know who Finnabair is, I have put a link below for you to see her work.
Also there is the link for our Seriously Scrapbooking website where you can book online.
