Step into Summer

It was June, and the world smelled of roses. The sunshine was like powdered gold over the grassy hillside.
Maud Hart Lovelace, Betsy-Tacy and Tib

Before we get our summer in gear, lets have some fun now and take a class or two! Our mid-June classes include two very popular classes that repeatedly fill quickly: Painting with Fire and Lapidary: Cutting Cabochons. Marilyn Gardiner has two chainmaille classes including a new bracelet design. One of Cindy Goldrick’s classes was recently published in the May/June 2017 issue of Jewelry Artist and she now brings it to you. There are more classes with Pamela Kearns, Anne Marie Desaulniers and Amy Waldman! Note: the air conditioning in the classroom works very well; you may wish to bring a light sweater or wrap.

Here are the classes scheduled June 11 – 20:
