Stir your Spring Spirit with a class

Spring! Winter is finally passing and the weather is showing a hint of warmer temperatures and sunshine. Depending where you are in Canada, tree buds may be starting to bloom and crocuses are starting to poke up through the ground.

Spring is a time to shake off the winter grime and pull out the brighter-coloured clothes. If course you need jewellery to go with your new Spring wardrobe – why not make it for yourself and friends!

Our mid-April classes will stir your Spring spirit with some seed beading, metal clay, fibre work and more!
