NABAS New Year Online Mini Class by Claire Carney

With the end of 2021 fast approaching, plans for New Year celebrations will be starting soon. Join Claire Carney to learn how to create two beautiful New Year designs, which can also be adapted for other occasions. These designs aren’t available on the high street, so adding these to your portfolio will really make your work stand out!
The class will take place on Wednesday 8th December at 1pm, with both designs being demonstrated along with a pricing walk through to ensure you are costing your work correctly and a live Q&A afterwards to cover any questions you might have.
Tickets are £20, with an option to catch up afterwards if you can’t make it live. Tickets are booked via Eventbrite using this link:…/nabas-mini-class-new…
The NABAS office will email out a link to the class (to the email address you used to buy your ticket) shortly before the class starts. Please note you will need your membership number handy to book your place.
