Stitches of the Beads We Brew

Yes, the bats will fly and the ghouls will howl at the end of this month, but there is nothing scary about the classes at BeadFX.

We have lots of classes coming up in late-October, including a full day chainmaille class with Marilyn Gardiner. Newbies to metalworking (and anyone who wants a refresher) will want to take Iris Rogers Melamed’s intro to soldering sterling wire class. Anne Marie Desaulniers will take your bead embroidery skills along to include fabric charms. You’ll learn about doing a style of bead mosaic with Pamela Kearns, with a surprise addition of adding cord to your pieces! Angela Peace is bringing a brand new way of doing kumihimo. Barbara Colautti has returned from hiatus to share show to do polymer clay pendants – a great first step in working with polymer clay! If you collect pebbles and want to include them in your designs, check out Ann Shewan’s drilling class.
