Return to Learn

It’s official – Labour Day has passed and the kids (or grand kids) have headed back to school! What about you? Are you ready to get ‘Back to Class’? Our free Back to Class Open House is this Saturday. I guarantee that your creativity will be stirred and piqued when you see the wonderful projects that our instructors have planned for this Fall.

Our mid-September classes feature a variety of techniques including metalwork classes with two new instructors: Liz Kennedy and Darija Radic. Anne Marie Desaulniers will lead you along a freeform peyote path with a new earring project. If you’ve wanted to add amazing colour to your metal, then Christine Woollacott’s new enamel class is for you. If you want original focal beads, how about making your own glass beads with Deb Muss? If working with small beads is your thing, then Pamela Kearns will introduce you to peyote triangles (FYI: it’s a good introduction to some amazing classes coming up in October). Bonni Poch will help you transform polymer clay into faux agate to create beautiful pendants!
