Yay! I have begun to get the summer schedule (and a bit of the fall schedule too)up on the site at last.
Before I get into that, our instructor of the week is Amy Waldman Smith. Amy has been teaching Glass Bead Making at Beadfx since 2004. Form and symmetry are hallmarks of Amy’s beads. She pays close attention to the technical details and strives towards uniform, functional beads. She has been making glass beads since 2001 and began working from her home studio in Richmond Hill in 2003. Prior to that, she haunted the beadFX studio in every spare moment.
Amy has a number of two day weekends coming up this year. Her class this weekend is full, but do not despair there are more–next one is July 11th and 12th. This is a great way to discover the art of making glass beads!
There are a few more really great classes this June. Dwyn Tomlinson’s Introduction to Lampworking runs from 4-8pm on Wednesday June 24th.
Catherine Winters How to Have a Successful Craft Show is Thursday June 25th from 6-9:15pm.
