Finnabair Workshops - June 2018

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
WORKSHOPS GO LIVE FOR BOOKINGS ON MONDAY 9th APRIL at 17:00 UK TIME ​​​​​​​
​​​​​​​
We are very excited to announce that the awesome Finnabair is returning to Art from the Heart to teach four wonderful workshops! For those of you that have attended a Finnabair workshop, you know what a treat you are in for!

Who is Finnabair?
My name is Anna Dabrowska, also known as Finnabair. I was born in Warsaw, Poland, now I live in Ireland with my husband, Andrzej and my pets. 
I'm a woman of many interests: a mixed media artist, art journaler and designer who loves new challenges, experiments and developing new techniques and skills. 
I've been creating since 2007, started scrapbooking in 2008-2009 and mixed-media in 2009 when I got totally addicted. 
 My projects are texture and art medium-based: I make paper and canvas layouts, collages and altered art, tags, journal pages – and many more. I believe in power of recycling and upcycling and just adore texture, paints of any kind and flea market supplies. Freedom, embracing creativity and being true to your inner voice is my main source of inspiration and creative energy. 
I'm a full time designer and artist and as anexperienced travelling teacher I offer a range of my own mixed media-based classes in collage, artistic scrapbooking, art journalling and more. I truly enjoy teaching and during my classes I focus not only on showing techniques, ideas and tricks but also I try to spread my love and enthusiasm for arts and crafts as I believe in therapeutic and liberating power of creativity. 
I work with such international brands as Prima Marketing (design team member since 2011 and product designer since 2013) and 7 Dots Studio ( product designer since 2011). I run my own Creative Team who supports my creative Blog and I design for international mixed-media and scrapbooking magazines. My biggest pride and adventure of the last years is my own mixed-media line of products released with Prima Marketing which happen to be source of inspiration for a large group of creative people. 

We will be providing Hot & Cold Drinks and snacks during the workshops for you to enjoy.
​​​​​​​Full class kits will be provided which are very generous and also all of your paints and mediums. There will be a small list of items to bring to the workshops which we will send out nearer the time - do not worry though as it is usually just your paintbrushes and a photo!
