Feeling Hot! Hot! Hot!

How is your summer, so far? I can’t believe we’re almost through July – and August is coming up quickly! Our Summer Comprehensive Classes continue through the month as well as a number of fun and inspirational project-based classes.

August opens up with our two open beading sessions – Open Bead Night and Afternoon Bead Tea. Both of these are great times to bring in your projects and work with your beading friends. By the way, we have great conversations and Marg makes sure we don’t get hungry! The action gets going after the Civic Holiday weekend with a new chainmaille project with Gillian Clarke that you’ll love – you can make an entire ‘parliament’ of them! By popular request, Angela Peace is bringing us a two-day class on Soutache embroidery. If you aren’t aware of Soutache, it is a sculptural embroidery technique that can be used for all kinds of jewellery components. Cindy Goldrick has two great wire jig classes and is also doing an in-store demo using That’s a Jig!.
