It’s official – BeadFX 2020 classes have kicked-off!

The clock struck midnight and ushered in a new year of classes at BeadFX! Many came to see the new class projects and met the instructors at our Class Kick-off event this past Saturday and the comments were loud – ‘the projects are great’, ‘it’s good to see them in person’, ‘I’m signing up before I leave today’! A big appreciative Thank You to everyone who came!

Our mid-January classes include a new wire project with Liz Kennedy that features anodizing niobium! Marilyn Gardiner has a full-day class specializing with flat chainmaille weaves. Seed beaders will have fun exploring freeform beading with Anne Marie Desaulniers. If you’ve never tried making jewellery before, or would like a refresher on some of the basics, check-out Pamela Kearns’ class!

      Hi Judith, Thanks for your inquiry! We don’t have on-line classes at this time. FYI, we are on a bus line (91 Woodbine, northbound, the stop is within sight line of the store). What kinds of classes are you interested in?
