Let Autumn Colours Stir Your Creativity

I love the colours of Fall – the deep, almost burgundy reds, crisp oranges, rustic browns and bright yellows and the remnants of summer green. How can it not stir the creative soul?

We welcome Astrid Riedel to our calendar of September classes. Astrid is teaching two outstanding lampwork classes. Our late-September classes also feature several new classes including a new full day class with Marilyn Gardiner. Angela Peace is teaching a new way to end ropes and other substantial pieces that need tube ends. Wire workers will love Lucie Lee‘s new class and seed beaders will adore Naomi Smith‘s new poppy pin that you’ll have ready for Remembrance Day. If you’ve wanted to try weaving, check out Pamela Kearns‘ new tapestry class using the Jewel Loom.

BeadFX is proud to help launch Marilyn Gardiner’s new book Creating with Components. As part of the launch, Marilyn will be leading scheduled make & takes throughout the afternoon. Autographed copies of her book will be available for purchase. Bring a friend and help Marilyn celebrate!
