February Classes Will Make You
'Leap' for Joy!

Yes, 2016 is a leap year where we get to add one more day to the calendar! Leap Years are needed to keep our modern day Gregorian Calendar in alignment with the Earth's revolutions around the sun. Did you know, it takes the Earth approximately 365.242199 days – or 365 days, 5 hours, 48 minutes, and 46 seconds – to circle once around the Sun. However, the Gregorian calendar has only 365 days in a year, so if we didn't add a day on February 29 nearly every 4 years, we would lose almost six hours off our calendar every year. After only 100 years, our calendar would be off by approximately 24 days!

So, what does that have to do with jewellery making? Absolutely nothing - except you have an extra day to work on your project!

We have quite a few NEW class projects during the last half of February including a new knotted project and a new soutache project with Angela Peace. Deborah Beesley brings us a new wire bracelet that showcases stone chips and Pamela Kearns will answer all of your questions about RAW and CRAW at a boot camp! Jen Rosen as a brand new wire wrapping class and Maria Rypan combines seedbeads and the new Honeycomb beads in a new netted collar. Anne Marie Desaulniers brings a new mixed media class. Learn how to use metal clay in Sue Henry's new class and you'll learn how to incorporate Egyptian Spiral Links in Jane Doidge's new project! So, how do you keep your studio tools looking and working great? Kelly Garland will show you! Plus, there are lots of encore classes as well as open sessions for your enjoyment.
