Planting Spring Seeds of Creativity
with more May Classes

This is the time of year when garden centres get busy - rich topsoil, lots of gardening tools and, best of all, plenty of seeds that promise full blooms and delicious vegetables. Classes are like that too! Our instructors plant seeds of know-how with a promise of beautiful jewellery. Yes, we need to cultivate and give ourselves some practice in new techniques but, when you have a wonderful finished piece that you're proud of, you know know the effort was worth it!

May classes continue with Liz Reynolds who will show you how to add colour to metal clay without heat. Cindy Goldrick has a new leather class and Anne Marie Desaulniers will take seedbeaders on a new free-form journey. Marilyn Gardiner brings us a new chainmaille design. Pamela Kearns, who might be pushing the Christmas season a bit, is teaching a new ornament project using triangular peyote.

And, of course, we have lots of encore classes with Kelly Garland, Jenn Jevons, Iris Rogers Melamed and Amy Waldman that you will love.
