In February while over here for the Trade Show Lynell The Queen of Stencils at Dreamweaver spent four days in Skipton teaching  Part 1 of the Dreamweaver  Teachers Certification course to two groups of talented crafters.

Lynell, Georgie, Jan, Emma, Janet, Dorrie, Judith, Gill, Janet, Dorothy

The course is a very intense two days, learning and practising Dreamweaver Techniques. To complete the course the participants have to go away and complete a project on their own with written instructions to show that they have an understanding of the techniques and that they are able to share these.

Gwen, Mel, Lynell, Christina, Sue, Linda, Judith, Diane, Viv, Julie, Jen, Nina.

If you are looking to learn more about Dreamweaver Stencils and how versatile they are then look out for a class across the country that is taught by a Dreamweaver Certified Teacher.  If you looking for someone to teach stencilling in your shop then look no further than our talented team.

So a bit about the team of of Certified Teachers (in no particular order)

This is a vibrant craft centre that has the space available for a constant stream of creativity, especially with such a well-stocked shop on hand. Christina has devised a Dreamweaver Course of her own to take her customers through their paces over a series of one day workshops.

  1. What alot of talent-all taught by the lovely Lynell. I enjoyed the course sooo much. I demonstrated some stencilling in March and whetted my customers appetites, and so far have taught 2 full beginners classes and 4 other technique classes, with 5 more in June and July coming up! Al of my classes have been oversubscribed, so Stencilling has really inspired us in Exmouth and Devon! Its keeping me very busy, and I love it and keep Dreaming up new things to teach. I’m also loving the new designs…oh cannot wait to use the owl. Thanks to Lynell. X


  2. I have just completed a fantastic 3 day dreamweaver course with Christina at AMAZEOFMEMORIES. Christina is a great teacher. The home work is always optional, but I intend to make some cards with the techniques we have done. Thanks christina.
