There is joy in creating, there is joy in travel, there is Joy in Collage!   
Where o where do we find us experiencing all of this joy?  Lecce, Italy.. a small gem in the south, part of the Salento peninsula in the heel of Italy’s boot.  Known as the “Florence of the South” with its astonishing archaeological ruins, rustic restaurants, and robust wines, a region fused with richness and exuberance.  This is where Suzanne Siegel will be sharing her joy of collage with us!
