At this year’s CHA 2014 MEGA Show, I hosted an Oil Pastel Smudge workshop and I was excited to have had 22 Newbie “Smudgers” from all over the globe attend, some of the areas represented were: Mid-West to California and Nevada in the US, New Zealand, Hong Kong, and South Korea. This diverse group of attendees made it very exciting and to see them share my passion about a technique was very inspiring.
This was the first workshop I have hosted with CHA and in doing so I am truly motivated to do more with the Oil Pastel Smudge technique then I had ever imagined.
I would encourage anyone that is considering offering a workshop at the next CHA 2015 Conference & Trade Show to do so. You will reach new heights in sharing and creating, like none other.
Sharing in our industry is the essence of the creative spirit we are instilling in our association. Nothing can match the joy and encouragement you are able to receive when you give – you are able to receive so much more in return.
There are opportunities available to sponsor a workshop at the upcoming Creative Retailer Retreat in Pittsburgh, PA. Click here for more info: https://www.craftandhobby.org/eweb/DynamicPage.aspx?Site=CHA&WebKey=ecd39676-7c45-4d0f-a36c-66cacf6bcffd
