July is just around the corner, and we have lots to celebrate including Canada Day and, for our southern neighbours, Independence Day. Enjoy the parties, fireworks and picnics!
Our early-July classes feature four new projects! Gillian Clarke combines beads and chainmaille for two bracelets while Christine Woollacott will teach you how to create custom findings for your designs and how to create a simple post setting that you can use in a myriad of ways. Liz Kennedy and Anne Marie Desaulniers are presenting encore seed beading and metalwork classes – in case they didn’t work with your schedule before now!
Here are the classes and open sessions scheduled July 1 – 10:
