May is Blooming with Classes

A new month is around the corner and I personally love May! The weather is a refreshing change from late-winter/early spring and you feel the anticipation of summer in the air. It is also a great time to try something new or re-commit to an activity you haven’t done in a while.

Hot on the heels of our first lapidary class in March, is a new gem faceting class with Boris Kolodny. Visiting instructor Robyn Cornelius brings us three new metalworking classes that all levels of experience can enjoy. You can also discover the fun of freeform peyote a try in a class with Anne Marie Desaulniers.
