Garden Delights Arts & Crafts Workshops

Do you have a preferred learning style when you’re starting out with a new art technique? Do you like to have a printed book to refer to? Would you rather go to a hands-on workshop where you can try out the process with a teacher guiding you and other people to interact with? Are you partial to ebooks or pdf downloads because the price is lower than a workshop or printed book? What about an online workshop with diagrams and step-by-step instructions that you can download and use over and over?

CraftArtEdu online class

People learn all sorts of different ways, and some techniques lend themselves more to one or another mode of study. As a teacher, I try to reach out to everyone by offering my workshops as books, ebooks, online classes, and in-person workshops. The workshops are thrilling because I meet so many talented people eager to find out about the techniques and materials that I’m excited about. It’s also incredibly satisfying to watch people work on their own projects and go home with, say, a piece of fabric that they printed using their own artwork.

I took a break from workshop teaching to finish my book about selling art online, but am happy to announce that I’m jumping back in, and I just found a great location in Pinole to start up again. I have the first three workshops scheduled and will be getting dates for the others. To make sure that everyone gets lots of attention, I limit the number of people in each workshop, so pre-registration is required. Please email me at HeidiRand@gmail.com with your questions or to pre-register for any of the workshops scheduled in June, July, and August. When you pre-register I’ll give you the address and more information about each workshop. You can see the list of my other workshops at my website.  If you’re interested in any of them email me and I’ll let you know when they’re scheduled.
