Do you want to be more creative? Think green!

You’ve probably aware that certain colours influence our moods: blue = calmness; red = passion, and so on. According to a study published in the Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin, green triggers inventiveness and creativity. Aren’t we lucky that St. Patrick’s Day falls in mid-March; bring on the green!

Mid-March classes feature projects in a wide range of techniques. Wire lovers will have a selection of classes from Lucie Lee, Christine Woollacott and Deborah Beesley. Seed beaders will discover the versatility of the peyote triangle in a class with Pamela Kearns. Ann Shewan will have dreaming of the possibilities of what you can do with drilled pebbles. Angela Peace will teach you how to create cords for your pendants and bracelet designs and Anne Marie Desaulniers will help you explore all that you can do with resin. We also welcome Anne Conrad who will take you through the history and steps to create your own dream catcher.
