Our mid-October classes are a mosaic of techniques

“Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor, summer an oil painting, and autumn a mosaic of them all.”
– Stanley Horowitz

Autumn is in full colour mode and our BeadFX instructors are busy helping students achieve their creative dreams! Our mid-October classes include a new seed beading boot camp with Pamela Kearns and a new chainmaille design with Gillian Clarke. Our newest metalwork instructor is hosting an open metal studio where you can work on your metalwork projects. We also have a weekend full of beading classes that celebrates geometric beading with Pam and with Marilyn Parker! Throw a show into the mix and the result is a very busy time – you’re invited to join us!
