March into Spring Classes

Weather doesn’t necessarily match the calendar, but we’re finally heading into a new season – Spring. Not only do our moods lighten but so do our colours – here come the pastels, the creams, the lilacs and greens. By the way, the Pantone Colour of the Year is Ultra Violet – a very amethyst-inspired colour that is perfect for spring-inspired designs!

Late-March classes include a ‘newbie’ class with Pamela Kearns – perfect to get started making jewellery. Anne Marie Desaulniers has a mixed media class using Pebeo paint and bezels for one-of-a-kind pendants. If you’ve wondered about metal clay, Liz Reynolds will help you explore the possibilities of this versatile medium. Catherine Sequalino Poitier will have you doing bead embroidery in the style of haute couture. If you’re working on a project and need some dedicated beading or lampworking time, then check out our open sessions.

We are thrilled welcome bead artist, designer and instructor Nancy Cain to BeadFX for three classes! Nancy’s specialty is peyote stitch and she brings us three stunning projects! You can also drop by and say ‘Hi’ to Nancy at the Meet and Greet being held in her honour.
