Break Winter’s Hold with a February Class

february-aurorasFebruary is the border between winter and spring.
~Terri Guillemets, “Years,” 2002

We’ve gone past the Winter Solstice and the days are (finally!) getting longer. If you’re getting cabin fever or need to be with like-minded friends, come on out for a class. In early February we have Sureka Sriharan with a new seedbeading class and Christine Woollacott is teaching how to create a sterling silver bezel for a rounded cabochon. Of course we have several encore classes including bead crochet with Bonni Poch, Crystal Intelligence with Sylvia Diveky and freeform peyote rings with Anne Marie Desaulniers.

Mark your calendars now to join us for Techniques Night on Friday, February 24. Staff will be doing demos on some of the lesser-known products that BeadFX carries.

Here are the classes and open sessions scheduled February 1 – 10:
