Be a Creative Light

“Don’t be afraid of the dark. Shine!”
― Vera Nazarian, The Perpetual Calendar of Inspiration

Have you noticed how many celebrations and cultures use candles and lamps? The common reason is to bring light into darkness.

Creativity is light and is especially needed in January – what seems to be the darkest period of the year. While we want to stay cozy and warm in our homes, sometimes we just need to get out and shine. A class is a perfect time to get your creativity burning and connect with others. Our late-January classes will do just that! Metalworkers of all skill levels will love Darija Radic‘s or Christine Woollacott‘s classes. How about a beadwork class with Catherine Sequalino Poitier or Pamela Kearns? Expand your chainmaille skills with Gillian Clarke! And, of course, you can always connect with friends at our open sessions as you work on your projects.
