All of the kits for her chain mail classes are available in both silver and copper. Saturday May 16th is her next new class, the Captive Round Necklace or Bracelet. This is a beginner course.
Byzantine Rose Bracelet on Saturday June 6th. This class is a beginner plus. It is recommended that students have some experience with a previously completed chain mail project.
Foxtail Bracelet on Saturday July 11th. This class is an intermediate class, students should have previously completed a few chain mail projects.
Saturday August 8th is her Double Spiral Bracelet. This is a beginner class and no experience or previous class/projects necessary.
And on Saturday September 12th is her fabulous Dragonscale Bracelet. This is an advanced course–experience and/or previous classes required.
We also have some of new classes with Angela Peace. Lucky for us she is coming back to Toronto in late May. She is offering two classes:
An Introduction to Chinese Knotting: Button Knots on Tuesday May 26th from 1:30-5:30
And on Thursday May 29th is Snake Knot and Phoenix Knot Cords.
Both of these are beginner classes. Angela will teach you how to make these knots and show you some practical ways to incorporate them into your jewelery designs.
