But cheer-up, there are loads of old and new classes this August that will help you forget that it's almost time to go back to work, or school, or whatever the slowly approaching end of Summer usually brings for you.
On Saturday August 7, Marilyn Gardiner will be teaching two classes:
Earrings and Pendants
This is a class for beginners, and all levels of beaders alike. Beginners can learn how to make simple and elegant jewelery components.
Celtic Vision Bracelet/Necklace
This class requires a bit of experience with chain mail. You get to choose if you want to make a necklace or bracelet. Both the necklace and the bracelet can be adorned with crystals, for those of you who are into the bling.
One of the new classes this month:
Introduction to Fusing and Metal Clay for Lampworkers
Are you a lampworker looking to add metal clay to your glass beads, or are you just looking for ways to add a little something to your already lampworked beads? This class will introduce you to the basics of handling metal clay, and making fancy beadcaps and headpins to add to your glass beads. Don't forget to bring your glass beads.
