In Loving Memory Class by Tania Willis

I love taking classes. I really do. My favorite classes are the ones taught by Tania Willis. I love her. I was lucky enough to take a Circle Journal class with her years ago. We even did a few rounds of CJ's with Tania. It was a lot of fun.

The best part of it all is that Tania and I became friends. And have been friends ever since.

Her classes are wonderful. She is really talented. And this time she is doing a class that I think we can all relate to.

A class about scrapping the loss of a loved one.

Below are the details about her class. This is a class that may help all of us get through the pain we feel when we lose someone close to us. Start the healing process and created something beautiful about that special person. You should really check it out.

In Loving Memory by Tania Willis
April 9 - May 7
During this 5-week course (one session per week) Tania will help spur you on to create an album dedicated to a loved one you have lost, all the while encouraging you to be gentle on yourself through the process. She will provide prompts and challenges to help you get your thoughts in order and onto the page, as well as suggestions for selecting photos and how to overcome the dilema of not having many photos at all. In addition, page sketches will be offered and a variety of embellishment techniques will be taught along the way. There's no better way than to complete a treasured project than in the company of a supportive teacher who is on her own journey of remembrance after losing her mom very suddenly and unexpectedly the summer of 2007. “It’s scrapbooking as a healing therapy, not just art.”
Cost: $25
