There is still lots of summer left for August classes

Turn those Dog Days of Summer into opportunities to learn a new jewellery technique! August hasn't stopped our creative instructors from bringing you lots of classes - including some new classes and projects. Note: our classroom tends to be on the cool side, so you may wish to bring a light sweater or shawl with you.

In early August we welcome two new instructors to BeadFX. We are especially pleased to bring lampwork and glass artist Sara Sally LaGrand in for two exciting lampwork classes. Come on out and meet Sara at a reception for her on Thursday, August 7! Also new is Nola Merriweather, a local East York instructor, who will be teaching an introductory course on creating and embellishing small books.

By the way, did you know the term Dog Days of Summer actually refers to the Dog Star, Sirius, which is part of the constellation Canis Major? Each summer between July 24 and August 24 the constellation appears in the northern hemisphere during what is usually the hottest time of the summer. A good time to keep your four-legged friends well hydrated! (Editor's note: Hmmmm... I wonder what else 'Dog Days of Summer' could refer to? Stay tuned!)
