Robyn Cornelius kicks off May classes

As I’m writing this, the outside is dull and rainy – typical April showers! However, I’ve been ‘planting’ nuggets of beading ideas that may bear interesting projects (and classes). We shall see what happens!

No doubt though we have some exciting classes coming up including three metalwork classes with Robyn Cornelius! I’ve had the pleasure of taking several of Robyn’s classes and her forte is being able to bring students of all experience levels through to completion of her class projects. We also have Barbara Colautti with another polymer clay application that mimics the look of wood or ivory. If you’ve wanted to try chainmaille, then Gillian Clarke’s class is your ticket to starting in this media! If you’ve been itching to learn how to wire wrap, then check out Bonni Poch’s beginner class.

In addition to our classes at BeadFX, we’re excited to be holding three Bead-Treat classes in London, Ontario. Instructors Marilyn Gardiner, Pamela Kearns and Angela Peace will sharing their expertise to a new group of students in our first BeadFX sponsored and organized retreat.
