A Weekend with Marta Lapkowska

If you ever want a great weekend crafting then look no further than Art Workshops run by Sue Tucker and Deb Martin. The atmosphere is brilliant. the people really fun to be with and the Art is to die for.

This weekend it was Marta's turn to bring amazing creativity to the Art Workshops and she didn't disappoint. From start to finish it was amazing. The only down side was that it flew by and none of us wanted to come home.

So what did I make. Well the first class in the morning was a vintage heart
In the afternoon we all made a beautiful card and tag.
Then it was back to the hotel for a meal and sleep......lots of sleep lol

Sunday morning started at 9am but as the clocks went back Saturday night, I had an extra hour in bed...much needed lol

The first project this morning has to be my favourite of the weekend, learning to make Marta's mini masterpieces. Fantastic technique and apart from one of my wings refusing to stick, a brilliant result. This is something I will do more of, perhaps on a bigger scale but loved it
After lunch it was the last class of the weekend and we made a lovely book cover. Marta was also good enough to share some of her tips for making the inside pages which will be a work in progress this week.
There is another event going on on line soon which is taking place in Coventry so don't forget to check it out. (Follow the link to find the details HERE
I can, hand on heart say, that if you are looking for a workshop to go to, look at Art Workshops first. You won't be disappointed.

Ooh and Marta's lovely daughter chose my raffle ticket and I won one of the main prizes
And on a personal note I met up with my facebook friends Mags Woodcock, Katie Skilton and Marta  and we had a great time. Here is a picture Marta's husband took just before we left.
and a group photo after one of the classes
Says it all sigh.....Going to have to book another one xxx
