Late-April Classes will Shower you with Creativity

Forget worrying about showers of rain (although we all love May flowers), this April you can count on showers of creative classes!

We have a number of NEW classes during the last half of April including a new Chinese knotting project with Angela Peace. Tuesday Tasters continue with an added evening session; you'll love the little beaded bead! Jen Rosen has a fun new wire bracelet and metalsmith Kelly Garland will share how to do a beautiful flower pendant in sterling silver.

Of course we have lots of encore classes! Iris Rogers Melamed will show how to do cold connections - no torch required! Jenn Jevons has two Art Clay Silver classes and Bonni Poch will take you to the next steps of bead crochet. Seedbeaders will enjoy Pamela Kearns' and Maria Rypan's classes and mixed media enthusiasts will love Anne Marie Desaulniers' project.

Also this month are two shows! Join us at the Knitters Frolic on Saturday, April 30. We'll have everything knitting enthusiasts need to add beads to their knitting creations. We'll also be showing our beads, findings and more at Toronto Bead Society's BEadFABULOUS, also on Saturday, April 30!
