Back to Class was a Blast!

Thank you to everyone who joined us for our first virtual event! It was thrilling to meet so many people, especially those who tuned in from beyond Toronto!

The learning continues in September with more classes – several of them brand new! Diane Whiting joins us virtually from California for two exciting classes that are full of sparkle and style. Gillian Clarke is sharing her expertise with beaded Kumihimo as well as some new chainmaille designs. Jenn Jevons will teach you all about Art Clay Silver – a terrifically versatile medium that ‘magically’ turns into fine silver! Liz Kennedy has a brand new project that involves weaving – yes, weaving – strips of metal. Pamela Kearns will share how to do the basics of jewellery-making – perfect for newbies and anyone who wants a refresher!
