May Classes are Blooming!

Bring on those May flowers! Classes are already blooming here at BeadFX. Our intrepid and innovative instructors have caught Spring Fever and have come up with wonderful classes to get your creative juices flowering.

Of course we have several NEW classes this month. Deborah Beesley will teach you how to create earrings using wire; Angela Peace has a brand new knot that doubles as a great bail. Metal clay Artist Christine Woollacott  is teaching how to do Cloissoné enameling on art clay silver and has also lowered her class fee to make it even more attractive! Our mixed media guru Anne Marie Desaulniers is teaching how to make Artist Trading Cards that can be used in a myriad of ways! Iris Rogers Melamed's afternoon classes have been extremely popular and she brings another soldering class to tantalize and excite.

We also pleased to announce the restart of Open Metal Studio: Metal Clay (formerly known as Metal Clay Play Day) thanks to Liz Reynolds who has offered to facilitate these sessions. All metal clay users will be welcome whether you use art clay silver, Hadar's Clay or another brand. As with all Open Metal Studio Sessions, there is a nominal fee and we ask that you call ahead so we can plan for your attendance.
