Happy Summer Classes!

I’ve been talking about the new Comprehensive Summer Courses that we’re introducing July and August. If you don’t already know, theses multi-day courses will pack the as much information about a technique as possible and give you lots of opportunities to practise your new skills. In addition to the intensive courses, we will continue to off the project-based classes throughout the summer too.

July starts off with with a five-day Gem Setting course with Kelly Garland that will encompass the many way of setting gems in sterling silver (FYI, the class fee includes all of the metal materials and gems!). Pamela Kearns kicks off her Seed Beading Boot Camp session classes and is teaching a class using the Huichol-style of bead mosaic. Check out the project-based classes with Ann Shewan and Liz Reynolds too! By the way, the air conditioning in our classroom works very well; I suggest that you bring a light sweater or wrap.
