We are very excited that Michael David Sturlin will be joining us this month. Michael is a well known, award winning instructor and artisan who teaches all over the United States and is finally making his way up to Canada! Michael will be here teaching two classes, October 22nd to 25th.
Michael will be teaching his signature Hand Crochet Chain October 22nd and 23rd from 10 to 6pm each day. This class is suitable for all levels and the finished product is incredibly supple and absolutely gorgeous. There are only 2 spaces left in this class.
October 24th and 25th Michael is doing something a bit different–Quick Clasps and Findings. This is different from our Metal Smithing 101 class. It will done in our classroom. A familiarity with basic tools is helpful but NOT essential. Students will be shown the proper techniques for forging, bending, forming and shaping wire to make the clasps and components. The majority of tools and processes will be covered so for those who have not used the tools extensively this will be a good introduction. The primary focus of the workshop is skill development. This class will be suitable for students of all levels.
We have more exciting classes coming up this month. Thursday October 1st is week 4 of Cindy Vroom’s Basic Bead Stitching 101 Continued– St Petersberg Chain. For those who were registered in the week 2 class, which was cancelled, it has been rescheduled for Wednesday October 7th at 6:30.
