August Looks Great!

Argh...I just realized that it was Tuesday. I was out at the Zoo and realized I should have blogged this morning. Sorry for the delay but here we go...

We have so many classes coming up over the next couple of weeks it's CRAAAZY! Tomorrow, Wednesday August 5th, we have a 4 Hour Introduction to Lampworking, Glass Bead Making, with Dwyn Tomlinson from 4 to 8pm.

Thursday we have Wire Bead Crochet Basics with Stephanie Dixon from 6 to 9pm. There are only 2 spaces available in this class.

Saturday August 8th, Marilyn Gardiner has two classes:
Basic Bead Stringing from 10 to 12:30

Double Spiral Bracelet from 1:30 to 4:30. This is a beginner chain mail class so there is no prerequisite.

Amy Waldman-Smith is offering a 2 day, 8 hour workshop, Learn to Make Glass Beads, on Saturday August 8th and Sunday August 9th.

Wire Bead Crochet Earrings with Stephanie Dixon on Sunday August 9th from 11-1pm.

Robert Burton's 3 week class, Wire Working and Wrapping 101, begins on Monday August 10th from 6 to 9pm. This is a beginner class, no prerequisite.

We have a lot more coming up in the next couple of weeks (see the site for all of the details), but I wanted to mention a few of the new classes we have coming up this month.

First, we have Pam Kearn's peyote class, I've Learned Peyote...Now What? Using a simple even-weave pattern, participants will learn how to read peyote patterns and make pattern adjustments. The course will also cover how to estimate length and width from patterns when using delica beads. It will also touch on how you can create your own patterns. This class runs on Thursday August 27th from 6:30 to 9pm and again on Sunday September 13th from 1:30 to 4 pm.

As many may know, Heather Bell-Denison has become a Senior Certified Art Clay Instructor recently. She has begun to teach the Level One Certification courses at Beadfx (the next one runs from October 2-5) and is now offering some new intermediate level classes as well.

Getting Hitched...Metal Clay Clasps will run on Saturday August 29th from 10 to 5pm. Heather will be teaching students a 4 different ways to make clasps, including magnetic clasps! Please note the typo on the time, it reads 9 to 6pm, but should be 10 to 5pm. Some metal clay experience required.

Sunday August 30th is the next class, Metal Clay Fusion. This is a fusing class that will focus on making chain using metal clay pieces and fine silver wire; students should have some experience with metal clay.

Don't forget about Happy Hour Torching this Thursday from 5 to 9pm, buy one hour get one free.

A reminder about the Fabric Sale on Friday August 7th from 11 to 3pm, $1.00 a yard--who can beat that!! It is for a great cause, see Dwyn's blog post from August 2nd for all of the details.

Happy Beading
