Demos and Classes Galore

Doing anything this weekend? at a loose end? then pop along to The Papeterie where you'll be spoiled for choice.

We have the very talented Andy Skinner demo-ing all day on Saturday, so take a seat and be amazed at what can be done with Andy's own stamp range, Martha Stewart paints and mediums. The demo is free, so take advantage of the opportunity to watch a great talent.
Andy then has an all day class on Sunday - so if you fancy trying your hand at his fabulous techniques then this is the class for you. Telephone 01224 802337 to reserve your place.

Because we like to cater for all tastes at The Papeterie, we also have Debbi Glennie doing cute :) Debbi will be demonstrating flexmarkers and promarkers with the oh-so-cute Bella stamps on Saturday morning and then she'll be running a class on the basics of colouring with the new Letraset flexmarkers - definitely one NOT to miss. There are still places on Debbi's class so reserve your place now on 01224 802337
For more info on these and lots more demos and classes, just click on the tabs at the top of the page.

Kath's Demo and Class

WOW, that's another week flown past, and we're almost at the weekend again.
This weekend we have our own local celebrity crafter, Kath Stewart in the shop. She'll be demonstrating how to get the most from the new Sizzix/Hero Arts Stamp & Emboss and Stamp & Die collections from 10am to 1pm on Saturday 17th March

If you pop over to Kath's blog you might be able to see some sneaky peeks. Then in the afternoon Kath will be teaching a class, she'll be showing you step-by-step how to make an inspirational tile using Tim Holtz and Hero Arts products, with loads of great techniques that you can also use in your cardmaking, scrapbooking, and altered art projects.
Here's a wee sneaky peek of her inspirational tile...
** we still have 2 places left if you want to join the class **
And if you needed another reason to tempt you into the shop, well we've had some more deliveries. I couldn't possibly tell you what they are, but a little birdie whispered the words Nestabilities, and Paperartsy!

Hope to see you soon
