February: short on days but long on learning!

February is winter’s last major kick at the can, at least here in Canada. The days are getting longer and you can start to feel a thaw in the air – or is that wishful thinking? And, with only 28 days in February, we know March is just around the corner!

February winds up with classes that will continue to fire up your creative passion. Beaders will enjoy a peyote class with Pamela Kearns (perfect if you want to brush up on your peyote skills before Nancy Cain‘s classes in March). Fibre artists will discover another Kumihimo technique with Angela Peace. Christine Woollacott will take you through how to create a kiln enamelling technique called Champleve. Lucie Lee will teach you wirework skills while creating a pair of earrings.

Here are the classes and open sessions February 21 – 28:
