Final Round-up of Summer Classes

"Don't cry because it's over. Smile because it happened."
- Dr. Seuss

Eight weeks of summer are just flying by. Pretty soon we'll be discussing Fall colours and getting ready for holiday shopping - BUT NOT YET! Until then, we have two weeks of wonderful classes provided by our inspirational instructors. Christine Woollacott is teaching how you can create a patterned sheet of mokume gane from which you can use to create all sorts of jewellery. If you're looking to learn how to do basic right-angle weave, then Pamela Kearns has the class for you - very useful too for a refresher before Jill Wiseman's classes. If you're interested in metal clay, Sue Henry's class will take you through the basics of Prometheus bronze clay. Metal enthusiasts will enjoy Kelly Garland's Forged Sterling Ring with Pearl and wire aficionados will enjoy Jane Doidge's class on creating a pendant bezel inspired by Spirograph. Sureka Sriharan brings us a beautiful bracelet incorporating cupchain, regular chain and leather - no stitching required!

Of course we have lots of returning and encore classes - just in case you missed them the first time around!

Yikes! And it will be over before we know it! Thanks for the shout out for my class. I'm pretty excited about the techniques used in this class. Students will learn lots. And we'll have fun!
