Convention 2017 - there's more...

Convention 2017 is coming - 31 March to 2 April! Here is some more information so that you know what you are letting yourself in for. Alongside Peggy Harris we have Suz Humpheys and Kim Moody.

See the Convention 2017 page for full details and a link to the booking form.

Suz Humphreys runs her own business called Surrey Crafts, teaching various arts and crafts classes in Surrey. She is mostly self-taught, spending hours researching and playing with ideas. She has attended workshops with some of the biggest names in the industry, including Tim Holtz, Wendy Vecchi, Dyan Reaveley and of course Andy Skinner!

She teaches mixed media classes, jewellery making and creative embroidery, and loves upcycling; taking unloved items and giving them a makeover. 

She is part of Andy Skinner’s Ministry of Mixology team in the UK, on DecoArt’s Helping Artist programme, and a recognised tutor for ‘You Can Folk It’

She has been published in mixed media magazines and recently launched her own stamp set.

Suz is teaching her feather design on Friday morning and a Folk It design on Friday afternoon.

Kim Moody is returning to teaching art/crafts after a few years doing IT support, and coaching. He and his wife, Julie, ran a ceramic teaching studio near Southampton, and he travel-taught across the south of England as an ambassador for Duncan Enterprises. 

He was taught his stroke-work by the king of brush-strokes, David Hoff, and his ambassador training by the late Gini Figueras, and Rhonda Thorne.

He will teach anything, and his favourite disciplines are trompe l'oeil, and paint effects, and loves to try new techniques. He writes articles, and flash fiction (very short stories) for fun.

He is on DecoArt's Helping Artist programme. 

Kim is teaching mixed media effects on the cover of an art journal on Saturday. He has also been volunteered to take the 'Friday Fun' after dinner ...

Sunday morning's session will be 'Daisies and Ribbons', a stroke work design by BADFA teacher, Rowena Howell. If Rowena is not available, this will be taught by Kim.
