Sharon Newport

Sharon has been a regular tutor at SENZ events and around the country since she began as resident scrapbooking tutor at Create in 2004. 

Sharon is both an artist and a papercrafter and this is evident in her style of layouts and mixed media projects. She is on the design team for Imagine If and teaches at SENZ and retreats for Create.

She will be teaching a couple of layouts at SENZ South as well as her popular Yupo paper backgrounds class (no alcohol inks in this one, learn what else you do with Yupo paper!) plus a Gelli Plate class. Sharon will take you out of your comfort zone and getting you to try new products, lots of techniques and plenty of laughs along the way. 

Sharon will also be teaching classes at SENZ2020 in Auckland.
