“One of my favorite classes to teach - "Imagine" collage. As with most of my projects it shows the way how you can recycle the stuff you already have in your stash, techniques which are fun and easy to do... and the effects are always mind-blowing!”

This fabulous class is a retired class which means that Finnabair used to teach it in-person all over the world. Together we have prepared it’s refreshed and twisted version with some bonus content added.

This class is perfect for everyone. Even for those of you who have already done it “live” in the classroom with Finn as you are getting a fabulous and priceless reminder of her most staple techniques together with tips that weren’t included. Once again you are getting a chance to meet with the great Finnabair but this time at the comfort of your own home.
If you have never done any of Finn’s classes this will be brilliant to start with. This collage and the techniques included will open a whole new world of mixed-media for you and you may find it the most inspiring art experience ever. Trust us, we know what we are talking about - we were once Finn’s students too!

Toni Weeks: I loved this class. I can't wait to take another one. I will be creating my project tomorrow, I can't wait to play.

Lynda Turnbull: Anna, You are a fabulous teacher.  You have explained very well and never patronising. Thank you and I look forward to more online classes. 
Best wishes, Lynda xxx

Peggy Snodgrass: Anna, thank you so very much for this online class.  I have been wanting to take one of your classes forever, but it's rare that you are in this area of the eastern US. 

My first attempt has been completed and more are to come in the very near future.  You are a wonderful, teacher who explained each step in the best possible way.  The class helped me overcome my fears or should I say reluctance to try the techniques. 

Thank you again for all the inspiration and hope that many more classes will follow.
