Wrapping up May

I'm slowing getting back into work mode - It was a fabulous weekend playing with metal clay, and two glorious days in the garden! A couple more days next weekend of planting and cleaning up, and then I can finally truly enjoy the garden.

The ladies at the shop are busily preparing to pack up for the Toronto Bead Society Show this weekend. We'll be down there Saturday and Sunday - Hope to see you there!


Join us on Wednesday evening (May 23rd) for Rae's A Little Bit of Everything Too class.  Wednesday evening 6pm to 9pm.


Rae's Beady Arts presents A Little Bit Of Everything Too. This is the ultimate opportunity to learn wire wrapping, coiling, linking and how to make wrapped loops. The best part is that it's all in one class and at the end of it, you"ll leave with a finished bracelet that can be worn immediately.

Focus Technique:Wire Work
Skill Level: Beginner to all levels
Price: $35 (+HST), payment in advance required.
Kit Fee: $25 (+HST). The kit includes all the materials needed to make "A Little Bit Of Everything Too Bracelet".

Thursday night is always hopping - Join us for Open Beading Night, or Happy Hour Torching.
