Fulfill your Resolution to Learn!

New Year's is the time we all make resolutions that will improve our lives -- lose weight, exercise more, worry less. How about making a resolution to learn something new?

January continues with great classes - many of them new - where you can learn new skills and have a new piece of jewellery!

Sureka has a new right-angle weave bracelet that is simply beautiful; Jen Rosen (a new instructor to BeadFX) is teaching how to create a wire wrapped bangle. Bonni is also sharing her wiring prowess with a wired pendant and ring class in a basics course! Do you have questions about seed beads, threads and needles? Pamela will answer them in a brand new class. Another new instructor, Deborah Beesley, will be combining seed beads and wire to teach you how to do some amazing bracelets. Angela has a new micro-knotting course to teach the basics of this technique that is enjoying a revival. New instructor Christine Woollacott will be teaching an ancient technique called champlevé, combing art clay silver and enamel for stunning jewellery!

Of course we have lots of returning classes including a beginner's loom class with Kelly, metalwork with Cindy; lampworking weekend with Amy and much, much more. Also back is Cindy's Open Metal Studio: Metalwork where you can bring in your projects and get Cindy's help with tips and techniques!
