May Classes are Blooming!

We’ve made it through Winter and Spring is bright and exhilarating! Those May flowers are starting to sprout and soon there will be bursts of colour everywhere.

We’re blooming at BeadFX too! Our instructors are exploding with new ideas and classes are flowering with new projects. Marilyn Gardiner is back with two new chainmaille weaves and Pamela Kearns has a new embellished right-angle weave cuff to share. Rae Huggins will show you how to use wire to create unique and different bails for your pendants. You can also join Tracey Neidhardt for a new project in vertical netting – a Victorian-style Netted Amulet Bag.

BeadFX will be participating in the Toronto Bead Society’s Spring Bead and Jewellery Fair. We’ll have lots of seed beads, findings and other goodies at the show for you.
