If you are looking for a bit edgy look, a style that combines the old and the new, gothic and industrial vibe – this is the right mini class for you! Light and shadow, mystery and intriguing details – are you ready to take a risk and go a bit bolder in your creations?
I’m here to help!!
“Industrial Bird Collage” includes so many things I love. My style is massively influenced by assemblage art, where everyday objects turn into fantastic, eye-catching art elements… it is fascinating to build compositions like this and add life to them by carefully chosen colours, highlights and shadows. It can look a bit complicated…but with my suggestions, tips and tricks, you can do it too!
This Collage Video Class is filled with all you need to create with confidence: detailed instructions, simple steps, and essential information on the products and elements used – including the moulds of my own design. The whole process is recorded in detail, and you can watch it as many times as you wish! What is more, all the techniques may be easily applied in other projects on various surfaces to create a unique, inspiring look!
During the Mini Class, you will see how you can use gesso, gels, and coloured mediums on a found object to create an impressive, inspiring background for your composition. You may be surprised that the list of ingredients is not that long and is mainly based on Liquid Acrylic Paints, Metallique Wax and Metallic Flakes!
This dynamic, informative, encouraging Video Class is suitable for all; only an elementary crafting experience is needed!

You might know me as Finnabair, but my real name is Anna Dabrowska-Pekocka, and I’m a mixed media artist, teacher, coach and product designer.
Transforming and upcycling everyday objects is the cornerstone of my craft; to make this “casual magic” possible for everyone, I develop approachable techniques for all skill levels. Between textures and paint, my love for dimensional artwork shaped the distinctive style. Mix in expressive freedom, awakening a creative spark each person holds inside, and therapeutic, releasing powers of art, and you’ll have a picture of my core values.
What had started as a hobby, in 2011 transformed into teaching in-person mixed media classes with immediate success. In 2013, I established a long-term relationship with one of the top craft suppliers worldwide, Prima Marketing; since then, I have counted myself among the most active and best-known product designers in the mixed-media world. The products I come up withstand out thanks to their distinctive style, which is unique to my brand, and blur the line between craft supplies, home décor, and fine art.
After over ten years on the market, I’m one of the most recognizable and experienced professional teachers in my field. My classes are in great demand, and I continuously strive to deliver the best possible experience and quality to my students. Being able to say that I successfully turned my passion into a full-time job is an incredible feeling.
My mission? To continue this magical, artistic journey, and guide, teach and encourage as many creative souls as I can on their path of self-discovery.
Art is always the Answer.
