Daytime October Workshops...

Morning all, It's Lou here today. As you may have read in Wendy's post HERE, we are really pleased to announce that Papermaze is finally starting up its classes again, as it has been almost a year since the horrific fire we had! We now have a new Workshop area with more space than before, with refreshments included, and of course during the classes the Papermaze shop will be open for you to browse and stock up if you wish!

We have been listening to peoples comments, and decided to hold some daytime workshops for those of you that cannot make the evening ones.
I will be teaching these myself, and the first one will be on Wednesday October 3rd 10am-12pm. Plenty of time to drop the kiddies off at school and still be home for lunch!

During this first class I will be concentrating on techniques using Mists and Sprays. I know many people love the effects you can get with them but are unsure on how to get the most from them! I shall be showing no less than five different techniques on one page...but dont worry, gloves, newspapers and kitchen towel will be everywhere just in case!

It will be a fun class, where you will leave with a beautiful layout, plus loads of knowledge on how to use one of the most versatile products in Scrapbooking. These techniques can of course also be transfered to your cardmaking or altered projects.

Here is an example of my work, so you can see the style of layout you can expect come away with...

If you are interested in coming to my class, but are concerned that the layout won't suit your style, dont worry! I WILL ALWAYS PRODUCE A GIRLY AND MASCLUINE VERSION OF EACH CLASS PAGE!! So if you only have photos of a little boy, please still come along!

Both mine and Wendy's classes are suitable for both beginners and the more advanced crafters. Each workshop is kept in small friendly groups so that you get the benefit of as much advice and tutoring as you need.

Class prices are around £11 which includes the kit to make your page, use of all our tools and also refreshments throughout. Plus, while you are attending the class, you will get a 10% discount on anything in the shop!  All you need to bring is a photo, and your general basic scrapping tools (ie. scissors, inkpads, glues)

If you are interested in attending the first of the daytime classes on 3rd October, please email me at
Alternatively, if you wanted to enquire about Wendy's evening classes, starting October 10th, please email 

You do need to email to book your place as we have to have the kits pre prepared.Thanks!

We look forward to seeing many old and hopefully new faces :-)

If anyone plans to go to any of the classes from Debenham or surrounding area I could offer to pay for their workshop in exchange for a lift to a class.
