Refresh your Creativity

It’s Spring! The weather is finally catching up to the calendar. Plants are poking through the dirt. You’re itching to start something new.

Spring is an ideal time to start something new or to breathe new life into a favourite activity. Classes are a great way to add to your knowledge base or to test your desire of trying a new technique. Our late-April classes have lots of options for you: Cindy Goldrick with Sue Henry will help you explore design possibilities with both wet and dry felting. If you’ve been wondering about the craze of ‘peyote with a twist, not crochet’, then you’ll want to check out a new class with Pamela Kearns. Gillian Clarke is here with an absolutely delightful – and easy – chainmaille pendant! Deborah Beesley has a two-part wire work class that will twig your creative genius! Marilyn Gardiner has a new full-day class featuring spiral chainmaille and Liz Reynolds will teach you how to use metal clay to fashion your own sterling rings. Lucie Lee has a new wirework earring design that will keep you on trend.

We also welcome Kim Fields back to BeadFX for a fun three-day lampwork class focusing on creating floral murrini!
