Beat cabin fever with a February class

I’m not a fan of February, but I know that as the days start getting longer, winter is beginning to give up its grip. The weather tempts me to stay in evenings but getting out for a class keeps my creativity flowing and keeps cabin-fever at bay. I invite you to come out for a class in February to ward off the winter chill!

There are lots of different classes in February including a new polymer clay class with Bonni Poch. If you prefer metal clay, then drop by for Liz Reynold‘s class. We’ve got lots of seed beading classes with Pamela Kearns and Anne Marie Desaulniers. Metalworkers will enjoy Iris Rogers Melamed‘s latest soldering class and you can even learn how to make your own glass beads with Deb Muss. If you’re into bead embroidery, then try tambour embroidery with Catherine Sequalino Poitier. Working on a project and need assistance? Come in and give yourself dedicated project time at Happy Tour Torching, Open Bead Night, Afternoon Bead Tea or the Open Metal Studio: Kiln Enamelling.
