What an amazing full on weekend we have here at Dusty Attic. Our very own International Tutor is here to share lots of tips and tricks with his stunning creations and art classes, stay tuned for lots of pics on the face book page and Instagam.
As you can see he has already met one the Aussie wildlife (who is tame) in Brisbane when he was there.
