April Forecast: Expect Showers of Creativity!

Forget worrying about showers of rain (although we all love May flowers), this April you can count on showers of creative classes!

Marilyn Gardiner and Bonni Poch brings us three NEW classes in mid-April. Pamela Kearns is also teaching a bracelet design featuring honeycomb and pip beads. If you’re interested in lampworking, but not sure if it is right for you, why not join Deb Muss for a quick 2-hour ‘Taste’ class at the torch? Also scheduled are two open metal studios that are perfect times to start or complete a metalwork project with assistance and tips from the facilitators. If you’ve taken an introductory lampworking course, remember that we have Happy Hour Torching every Monday (except holidays); come in and work on some lampwork beads!

Keep in mind that, later in April are classes with visiting instructors Karina Guevin (Sculptural Beadmaking and Glassblowing Techniques) and Carolyn Cave (Constellation Beaded Bead and Pendant; Octagana Bracelet; Atlantea Necklace and Piggy Blossom Necklace).

Here are the classes and open sessions scheduled April 11 to 20:
