Workshops at Scrap N Crop in Malaysia – how about a tour?

Malaysia

Crazy cool 🙂 I am totally excited and psyched that I was invited to teach in Malaysia next March at Scrap n Crop. We will have lot’s of fun with some awesome Mixed Media Workshop at their Art Retreat March 22-23,2014.

SnC Nathalie Kalbach

As this is quite a distance to travel for two days of teaching- I would love to combine this with a workshop tour in either Asia and/or Australia. I had an amazing time teaching in Australia in 2011 and I know already who to contact to come back as they already hinted they would love to have me back 🙂  and I know that usually us teachers are just silently setting everything up…and I do this too 😉 but I thought hey-  why not ask out loud for help and tips from my readers that might come from Asia and Australia. Because who knows better than you !

So here is my shout out for Help :)))

helpwanted

  • If you are a shop owner or an event organiser and you would love to have me there – please contact me and let’s check if we can make it possible 🙂
  • If you are a reader that knows a store that might be interested in having me – please let me know which one it is or if you know the storeowner, maybe tell them about my plans and ask them to contact me 🙂

Thank you so much !!!

huge hugs and have a wonderful day

Ich freue mich riesig über die Einladung zum Ostsee Scrap Event in Boltenhagen vom 3-5. Mai 2013 organisiert von Tolles Ding !

 

Einen Schatz in Form einer Hotelperle haben wir mit dem liebevoll gestalteten „Tarnewitzer Hof“ gefunden. Laßt Euch auf das Angenehmste überraschen, wenn Ihr das schicke und gepflegte Feriendomizil betretet. Ruhig gelegen und persönlich geführt, nur wenige Minuten vom Strand und der Ostseetherme entfernt, lädt er seine Gäste ein, in harmonischer Atmosphäre mit Küstenflair und direkter Nachbarschaft zu den Salzwiesen, einen angenehmen Aufenthalt auf der Halbinsel Tarnewitz zu verbringen.

 

 

Entdeckt auch Ihr die Reichtümer der Küste im Ostseebad Boltenhagen, dem zweitältesten Seebad an der Ostseeküste mit seinem bunten Treiben an kilometerlangen Sandstränden und der romantischen Steilküste, einem Kleinod der Natur.

Announcement: ArtFusion in The Netherlands Changes of Location and Date

We Heard You!!

Yes, we did! On our announcement of the Artfusion Event we planned we got a lot of comments about the location. Many of you asked us why we didn’t plan it somewhere in the middle of the Netherlands. It would be easier for you to get there and it would also increase the travel distance/time for a lot of you. Also we heard that April was already so full of events and stuff.
And we agree! So we decided to postpone the event and find a better location. We think we found the perfect place!

Artfusion will now take place June 15-16 in the middle of the lovely city of Utrecht. Being a big railways junction in the Netherlands and only 45 minutes by train from Schiphol airport we think Utrecht is one of the best places we could have chosen.

The facility (Kade Ateliers) is a canal house at the Leidsekade 17, near the center of Utrecht where we have the availability of 2 lovely, light rooms. As we see it, we have all the ingredients for an amazing creative weekend on hand here.

Here are some pictures of the location:

Dr. Seuss knew it: there is something magic about books. Each book is a beauty in and of itself – a story that leads you into a new world of fantasy. Books also have a feeling of importance to them, such as with a fabric coated hard cover or just the paper itself.

But sometimes a book loses its fascination and ends up at a flea market or at the back of your bookshelf never be opened again. Why not breathe life back into those books again and fill them with your own stories? You can alter them in a way that these treasures bring unique joy back.

Nathalie Kalbach will show you how to create either a funky or a simple style altered book. You will learn beautiful folding techniques, such as ways to create pockets for treasures or hidden messages that go along with your story. You will learn how to use adhesive in unexpected  ways and learn fun embossing techniques. Accompanied by beautiful Prima paper, flowers and stamps, this book will be a personal keepsake or a special present to a loved one. What’s more, it can function not only as a mini album but also as a home decor item.

Come and join Nat in this three-and-a-half-hour long workshop. Be awesome and be a book nut!

I would love to see you there 🙂
have a gorgeous day
