Bring Colour to November

November comes and November goes; With the last red berries and the first white snows.
~ Elizabeth Coatsworth (1893-1986)

Yes, October’s pallet of colours are fading, but November brings new opportunities. How about a shot of bright red in that symphony of black, white and gray?

Increase your design and technical skills at a class in November! We welcome Betty Stephan in early November as she brings three bead embroidery classes that will spark your creative imagination. Also new is a brick stitch design with Pamela Kearns that focuses on individual components that you will join to form a bracelet. Liz Reynolds is bringing a new 2-day cuff project – a perfect opportunity to learn all about adding texture in metal clay and then forming the fired metal into a cuff! Iris Rogers Melamed will teach you how solder sterling silver wire! If you haven’t had a chance to discover Tambour Embroidery, you have an opportunity to join Catherine Sequalino Poitier for a class. Metalsmith Christine Woollacott will show you how to do granulation – a wonderfully textured metalwork technique! You also notice that we are starting to roll-out on-line registration with Betty Stephan’s classes!
