Summertime and the Living is Creative!

One benefit of summer was that each day we had more light to read by.
~Jeannette Walls, The Glass Castle

Not only do we have more light to read by, but think of all the other creative things we can do with the longer days! We have lots of new classes in the latter-half of June that you'll love to try. Pamela Kearns has a new way to bust your bead stash by beading round a cord. Iris Rogers Melamed has a new metalsmithing class for metalwork lovers. Wireworkers will enjoy learning a new wire wrapping project with Jen Rosen and Marilyn Gardiner has two new chainmaille projects for you. If you've taken Jewellery Making 101 or know the very basics of jewellery making, then Pamela Kearns will help you add some design options in Jewellery Making 201. Christine Woollacott is teaching granulation - a new and (she says) easy technique you'll be amazed at. Cavandoli students will step their skills with a new pendant design from Angela Peace and seed beader Sureka Sriharan has a new beaded bead design that features SuperDuos. Of course, there are lots of returning and encore classes for your enjoyment too!

I'm trying something new with this posting. Clicking on the title of the class will link you to the specific class page on our website (it will open in a new window) so you can quickly see more about the class. Let me know what you think. Is it helpful? It is a nuisance? Does it make a difference? Thanks!

Please note: our air conditioning is now on and we strongly recommend that you bring a sweater or wrap for classes and open sessions in the classroom.
