So I have been promising details of the Deep Blue Crafting classes for far too long without actually giving you the details. I apologise, and this post will fix that!
The classes will be held monthly, on the second Wednesday of the month, unless I have another commitment – like the fact that this month I will be in New Zealand for OnStage with Stampin’ Up! They will be for 2 hours from 7:30pm to 9:30pm, at my home in Beggarwood, Basingstoke.
Each class will have a theme, and there will be an average of 4 projects for each event, including cards, gift wrapping, tags and 3D items. Not all types of item will be made each month, obviously, but we will make at least two types. Maybe something like this:
The current plan is to focus on a particular stamp set each month, but this is the Beta testing phase of the classes, so they will evolve based on what works for me and my attendees. If you come along as an attendee then you will have a chance to help me to shape the classes to what works best! The main aim of the classes is to get together and make cards and items to share, while also having some social time and benefitting from the relaxation effect associated with crafts. I am here to help you to de-stress, and the idea of the projects is not to increase your stress levels by being overly complicated! We will make items at various levels of difficulty, and they will all be easy to achieve, I promise!
In order to sign up for a class, you will need to email me to save your place, and then pay your class fee to guarantee your attendance. The base level cost of the classes is £15 for the beta level, and this will cover the cost of all materials required for the class. If you would like to order the items used in the class then this will be possible at additional cost.
I hope that you can join me at my classes – but be quick, as there are only 8 spaces available each month! As I mentioned above, the classes will be held at my home in Beggarwood, Basingstoke, and will be small and intimate for us all to get the most benefit from them. So make sure you don’t miss out!
For those of you who are further afield and so it is not feasible to come to Basingstoke for the evening, I will be holding some online events, which are still in the alpha planning stages! I hope to be bringing you more news on those in May.
Next week I am off to New Zealand for the OnStage event where they will launch the new Annual catalogue for demonstrators, and I am very excited about that. But it does mean that my first class will be delayed and so it will be on Wednesday the 24th April. To join, simply email me and I will let you know how to pay.
The dates of future classes in 2019 are listed below:
I trust that those dates are currently free in your diary, so you can put the classes in your priority list and come along for fun and friendship. Particularly the April class, as not only is it the first event, but I will also have information to share about the new catalogue and some new products to play with!
Get your emails in quick to secure your place, and to pay your £15 class fee. I will see you soon, and I will be back before you know it with more exciting news!
