BeadFX classes – all treats, no tricks!

Well, maybe some tricks – like how to make designs ‘pop’, tips about seed beading, working with cement, making loops with headpins, etc. Definitely lots of treats such as learning new skills and meeting like-minded people!

Late-October classes showcase a wide range of techniques and projects. Anne Marie Desaulniers has two new brand new classes sure to get your creativity pumping! We also welcome Alberta bead artist Carolyn Cave who is presenting two classes featuring lots of texture with some two-hole beads.
