I am Elitia Hart, a South African born metal crafter now living in Calgary, Canada. Having worked with and explored a variety of artistic materials and techniques I found my true medium of expression when introduced to metal sheet embossing in 1999. I create one-of-a-kind metal embossed art pieces including custom made pewter mirror frames, boxes, journals etc…frankly, I stick metal on pretty much anything that stands still long enough….
I have worked and taught classes almost exclusively with pewter sheet for the past 12 years until a friend suggested that I look at the Ten Seconds Studio website www.tensecondsstudio.com and the marvelous colored metals that they had.
A Bra-Free weekend in Dallas, Texas and an inspiring TSS Metal Certification course later I found myself obsessively experimenting and creating small artworks with these great tools, beautiful colored metals and awesome molds.
As a Certified Ten Seconds Studio Instructor I can indulge my passion for sharing my knowledge and technique through teaching introductory and advanced classes using the fantastic TSS method, metals, tools and molds.
The possibilities are endless and I have developed various classes that will ignite an unbridled enthusiasm for this medium in card makers, scrapbook enthusiasts and dabblers in mixed media.
