May is blooming with classes

After what seemed to be the longest winter, Spring is finally bringing forth the blossoms. My budgie Indy has been answering all of the early morning birdsong – a much better alarm clock to wake up to! If this seasonal renewal has got your creativity whirring, then check out our mid-May classes. The range of classes touch upon bead embroidery, kiln enamelling and metal clay, lampworking, and seed beading. Anne Marie Desaulniers has a new class exploring stitching and beading on fabric that is completely intuitive – no patterns, no experience required! Liz Reynolds will teach you how to create a brooch using metal clay – and no pins for the brooch!
