In-person workshops




Regular Art Journaling
Art from the Heart - Harrogate, UK














Sat 4th October
Sat 22nd November
Sun 14th December

Come and join Kate in this new regular, monthly, art journaling class. Kate knows that the only way to maintain creativity is to keep art journaling lots, and on a regular basis, because the more you create the more creative you become! Kate will explore a different theme or technique during each session and lead you on a colourful, creative (and messy) journey!

Required: Art journal or sketch book.


Card-making and craft workshop
Kirkby Malzeard - Mechanics Institute
Saturday 29th October
e-mail for details or to book: crane.kate@yahoo.com
Colour pop cards!  Let’s make some beautiful, delicate cards using black and white stamping to create a monochromatic theme before adding splashes of bright colour!












Stamp Carving
Art from the Heart - Harrogate UK
Saturday 18th October














Add a unique touch to your art projects and art journaling by designing and creating your own stamps! Make your own background and collage papers or add a special touch to your art journal pages, or even make tags and greeting cards.
Carving your own stamps isn’t so hard especially with the Easy Carve stamp carving system. The Speedball tool makes light work of the carving, and easily glides through the carving material (unlike the lino cutting we all did at school!)
Kate will guide you through some design principles to help you design your own images, both background and feature images, and she will provide some helpful carving tips to help you avoid slip-ups!




Card-making and craft workshop
Kirkby Malzeard - Mechanics Institute
Saturday 25th October
e-mail for details or to book: crane.kate@yahoo.com
Try this simple but very effective technique of heat embossing designs onto white card and over-spraying with colourful inks to create bold and striking designs. 
*Warning! May be messy - bring an apron!



Mini art journaling

Art from the Heart - Harrogate, UK
Thursday 28th October


















Just like journaling …but on a tiny scale! Mini journaling can be done in any small notebook or sketchbook, but due to its compact size it is quick, accessible and a lot of fun! It’s a great place to use up odds and ends of collage images, and a great place for all of your smaller stamps. We’ll be painting funky, colourful backgrounds and then adding tiny images and stamps to create glorious pages in miniature. Great for journaling on-the-go, or when real life gets in the way and you just haven’t got the time for a larger page….
Click *here* for details.
Required: Small Moleskine, mini notebook or sketchbook.


Mono-printing
Art from the Heart - Harrogate UK
Saturday 29th November
Don’t let your printing plate lie around unloved and unused! The gorgeous layers, patterns and backgrounds you can create with a printing plate is limitless. Building layers in this way can be surprising and definitely fun! Let Kate show you some top tips for creating some cool backgrounds, experiment with printing on different  substrates such as sheet music and Deli paper, and learn different ways to add texture and pattern to your prints.
*Please note: Do bring your Gelli Plate or Creative Palette plate with you as we do not have a class set.
*Please bring your art journals.

Thank you Kate Crane you're a fabulous teacher. Jools

 I did a one day workshop at AFTH a couple of years ago and it was fabulous! She was such a sweetie and I learned so much! I'd love to do a full weekend one :-) Ali

You are an amazing teacher Kate. Thanxs for a great weekend really enjoyed myself as usual. Mell

What a great weekend - I am inspired and had a fabulous time. You are an amazing teacher who seems effortlessly to help others find their creative side. I am excited to carry on with my unfinished pages. It was great meeting you and seeing all of your fantastic work first hand - thank you for the tips you shared with us, for your time, ideas and encouragement. I look forward to taking another workshop with you in future. Kim x

Thanks Kate for an inspiring weekend!

I was lucky enough to attend Kate Crane's class on golden paints today - fantastic! So much info and techniques stuffed into the class, image transfer with gesso and golden mediums, texture paste, glazes, layered journal pages and so much info about golden paints and how to use them. I definitely 
recommend the class!

Thanks for a wonderful, creative day Kate! So nice to meet you.

It was a fabulous day, thanks for a fun day Kate x

It was a great day thanks Kate - just flew by!

Such a great day - shame it sent so fast. Thanks Kate for great teaching and making it so enjoyable!! 

Thank you for a great class yesterday Kate. It was completely out of my comfort zone but I did enjoy myself. Am going to finish off my pages at the weekend.

It was a great class, the addition of some lovley background music was very relaxing. I hope I can carry on and make some pages of my own, now I have a basic understanding of the process - thanks Kate!

Fab day! Fab teacher! Fab Birthday cake!, Fab gellis! Fab company! Lots of new goodies AND I learnt loads!!! Gwen

Brilliant day always feel I learn lots of new techniques with Kate Crane. Ruth

Thanxs for a great weekend. You are such an amazing teacher and so inspiring to watch work. Mell

Today I have been mostly - splodged and puddled!! and loved it!! Thanks to Kate Crane for inspiring us all! And there is more tomorrow! Gwen

Thank you for a great workshop yesterday Kate, I really enjoyed it and loved doing the journal pages and seeing how you capture the lovely colourful vibrancy in your work. Barb - The Stamp Attic

Well I've had the most enjoyable day today. I really had a lot of fun at Art from the Heart (AFTH), .... it should be dished out as therapy ..... I sang all the way home in the car on cloud nine! The paint-ier my hands (and face) got today the happier I became.  Kate Crane was of course on top form again drawing out the secret artist inside you. I'm always surprised about all the creative things I've made when I get home. If you've not been for a class there, then you should seriously think about having a go. 

We're back home from England! We've had a great workshop from Kate Crane! Kate thanks for this gorgeous weekend!!

That was a fantastic fun-filled weekend, thanks 

It really was a great day - lots of fab techniques, the chance to play with new products and a really nice 
group of people :-)

Thank you Kate for another fab day teaching us all how to draw faces.

 Awesome day Kate - thanks - I'm  pleased I drew something other than cartoonish stuff!!! Fab day.

Thanxs Kate for getting me addicted to another technique.

Thanks Kate for another amazing class. 

We all did amazing pages, Kate brings out the best in us. 

We had a fab day playing with the new stampotique stamps!!  Thanks Kate Crane for and awesome day and for sharing your new stamps!

I had a really fantastic time. It's the people, the teacher, and the environment, it just brings out the best in all of us. Thanks for the brilliant tips Kate, I'll never forget them.
