We’re in the midst of the ‘Dog Days of Summer’ – traditionally the hottest part of the season. The origin of the saying doesn’t actually refer to our canine friends but to the placement of the Sun in the in the canine constellation of Sirius. Your trivial tidbit for the day!
The air conditioning has been working at full speed at BeadFX as we’ve had a couple of scorching heat waves in Toronto. The comfort adds a benefit to taking a class! Our mid to late-August classes feature new classes as well as encore projects – just in case they didn’t fit in your schedule before now. Definitely check out Christine Woollacott‘s class that combines metalwork and metal clay techniques. Marilyn Gardiner‘s new boot camp will introduce you to the world of chainmaille and help you gain experience as you progress in your maille adventures. Gillian Clark has a new chainmaille weave that combine colours of rings into fanciful designs. Pamela Kearns, Anne Marie Desaulniers and Jenn Jevons also have classes you won’t want to miss.
