Exciting Plans...

Back in May I went to Spain for a few days to discuss teaching residential courses at Artizan...  This is a new venture, run by the lovely Karen Dawton, to offer a variety of residential courses based in Gerona (in Catalonia, Spain).
The venue is a fabulous Spanish farmhouse set in a valley of lush forest where the only noise is birdsong - seriously - no. other. noise!  Apart from, when classes are in session, the sound of a good time being had by all! lol 
The venue is easily reached by air - only a short flight (2hours).  (I travelled with Ryanair who were good but don't get me started on the 10k of carry-on luggage - 10k!!!!!!!! imagine me pulling 'the scream' style facial expression... lol)
The farmhouse has been beautifully refurbished - 12 rooms most with en suite - and when its time to relax after (or before) a 'hard' days crafting a quick dip in here will do wonders...
I'm going to be teaching mixed media classes - the first course is planned for September.  This residential (all inclusive) course will be for 3 days (4 nights) and among the projects we'll be creating is a box canvas, and a masterboard to use as a base for other projects. 
A trip to the nearby beautiful Mediaeval town of Besalu could also be factored into your time at Can Jan - its well worth a trip!
Here are some sneak-peeks of the canvas options to wet your crafting tastebuds :o) 
 If all the above sounds tempting go to the Artizan website for more information about the courses, venue and area http://www.artizanonline.com/
I'm really looking forward to teaching these courses - hope you can join me!
