June offers more opportunities before summer kicks-in

Where is the time going? It seems that we were just discussing summer as a ‘concept’ – and now it is almost here! July and August here we come! But, let’s not rush the season – we have lots more classes and opportunities in June.

June wraps up with a new metal clay class with Liz Reynolds. We also have classes for seed beaders with Pamela Kearns and wire enthusiasts with Jen Rosen. If learning pearl knotting has been on your radar, then you’ll want to connect with Angela Peace‘s class! Fine silver metal lovers will be able to explore FYI clay with Christine Woollacott. Interested in lampworking but not quite sure if it’s for you? Deb Muss will answer your questions and help you make a few beads!
