'Tis the Season - to Treat Yourself!

December is coming up quickly and we'll all soon be in the midst of holiday preparations - running to the mall for gifts, baking those family-favourite goodies, cleaning our homes from top to bottom to get ready for guests and just trying to get too much done amidst our usual activities and chores. Whoa, slow down! We need to take some time for ourselves too!

I invite you to come an take a class during December and take three hours to catch your breath, sit down with fellow beaders and jewellery makers, and simply get away from all.

We have a wide array of classes during December including a new Cavandoli project from Angela Peace and two chainmaille projects by Marilyn Gardiner. Roxann Blazetich-Ozols brings us a new way of adding beads using her Ducette tool (a wonderful new tool for fibrework); Sureka Sriharan is also teaching a tennis bracelet project using right-angle weave. Liz Reynolds bring us another project using Hadar's Clays to create metal clay tubes and hollow forms. Iris Rogers Melamed has brought back her Hot Connections: Connecting Components class -- perfect to create gifts for your friends and family. There are other classes and projects to with Anne Marie Desaulniers, Amy Waldman-Smith and Maria Rypan too!

We also can't forget our new Holiday Class Bash -- three classes in one evening! Students will rotate through three 1 hour classes with three instructors to create three holiday-inspired projects!
