The temperature is rising and so is the creativity in our mid-July classes! Gillian Clarke, Pamela Kearns, and Laurier Poirier (BeadFX’s newest instructor!) are bringing you amazing virtual classes. If you’ve ever wanted to create a beaded box – Gillian will show you how! Pam will show you how to create a bead mosaic using an ancient technique developed by the Huichol people of northwest Mexico. Laurie will have you creating a season’s worth of wire rings – perfect for yourself, friends and family!
For the first time since March, we are offering an in-studio class with Liz Kennedy. Join Liz and forge away to create a statement copper cuff. In keeping with Provincial mandates, this class will be kept small and all attendees will be masked during the full class.
Looking for company while you bead or do chainmaille? Look no further than our weekly FREE Virtual Afternoon Bead Teas!
