Finally, we’ve hit summer! School is out, vacations have begun and it’s time to relax. No need to stop learning – come on out and take a class with us. Comfort alert – our classroom tends to be a little cold at times, so it’s always a good idea to bring a sweater or a light pashmina to put around your shoulders.
We have some new classes during the first half of July – Tracey Neidhardt is sharing how to make a beaded ring using brick stitch; Malliga Nathan is bringing us a necklace using hammered wire and Boro Swoop drops; and Anne Marie Desaulniers is teaching another mixed media project to create tiny Treasure Boxes (they are beautiful!). Cindy Goldrick is bringing us two new classes – Mold Making for Resin and Paper Clay Components and Playing with Fire: Enameling Fold Formed Components.
We also have a new instructor – Ian Akiwenzie is teaching us a traditional First Nations design with Ojibway Floral Earrings using bead embroidery. Ian is a traditional dancer is creates his own beaded costumes – they are truly amazing! I’m very glad to have Ian joining us.
Also, Open Beading Night and Afternoon Bead Tea will continue through the summer and all are always welcome.
