Valentine’s Day is on its way, but instead of focusing on others, perhaps its time to focus some attention on ourselves. Do you get creative ideas at the oddest time – for me its just before bedtime – and you just need to write or sketch it out? It doesn’t matter what your medium is – lampwork, beadwork, fibre or metalwork – that moment of creative clarity is trying to tell you something: get back to doing what you love!
BeadFX’s classes can help you with the technical aspects of how you can work on your designs. Our open sessions can help give you dedicated, assisted time to work on your creations.
Our mid-February classes feature several jewellery-making techniques including working with fine silver metal clay with Jenn Jevons; freeform peyote with Anne Marie Desaulniers and cabochon cutting with Boris Kolodny. If you need the very basics of how to begin, Pamela Kearns‘ class is a great place to start.
Here are the classes scheduled February 11 – 20:
