SnC's CELEB ART RETREAT with Iris Babao Uy - Additional Spaces + Photos of Actual Project + Arrangements for Overseas/ Outstation Crafters

I'm so excited! I can't help it. Iris Babao Uy is not only extremely lovely and talented, but her ART RETREAT Workshops planned at this 20th and 21st April 2013 will incorporate soooooo many techniques and mediums - many of which you might not have tried or ended up with less than satisfactory results!

So, for once you can get first hand knowledge on how to use all the dyes, tints, stains, mediums, pigments, paints, chalks, pastels, gelatos, mists, pearls, sprays … etc; stuff which seems to alien and artsy to some - given that a vast majority of purchasers of products under's "Embellishments: Glitter, Paint & Pigment" have been artists (some famous ones too!) and art students.

Hence, the end results - which you will agree with me (shown below) - are very very vibrant albums, layout and a canvas art piece. 

And if this is not enough to get me to cloud 9, all 4 projects taught by Iris Babao Uy will be using different techniques and mediums! 
Guaranteed NO REPEATS!!!

For those that have been asking (pestering really) … yes, we have somehow magically extended the classroom space and are offering some additional seats for both the Album workshops.

Also as a clarification, the two album classes are very different:

Day 1 (20th April 2013 - Saturday) Full Day Workshop
