Summer Classes Wrap-up: “Not Already!”

It’s okay – I’m just giving you a head’s up that September is around the corner. But, before that happens, there are still lots of summer opportunities and classes at BeadFX!

Metalwork artist and instructor Kelly Garland is offering our last comprehensive class for the summer. The five-day course is an ideal time to learn all about working with metal, including soldering, sawing, annealing and more! Marilyn Gardiner has two great chainmaille projects and Pamela Kearns is teaching how to create a pendant on the Clover Mini-Loom. Of course, the Happy Hour Torching, the Open Bead Nights and Afternoon Bead Teas are continued so join us then too!
