Enjoy Summer with Cool Classes

While I'm planning far-future classes and visiting instructors for 2016 as well as sharing near-future classes and events, I need to remind myself to enjoy the here and now. Summer activities are just getting underway and so are our summer classes.

We have several NEW classes in the latter-half of July to get your creative juices flowing. Metal artist Christine Woollacott brings us a Mokume Gane Ring - perfect for students who are ready for a new project using three different types of metal. Our own Kelly Garland, a metal artist in her own right, will take students of all levels through the steps of creating sterling silver hoop earrings - no soldering required! Cindy Goldrick bring a new enamelling technique - raku style enamelling that incorporates many of the same techniques as creating raku pottery. Jane Doidge who has brought us several exciting wire projects is back with a variation of the Egyptian Spiral to create a whole new set of jewellery pieces. Marilyn Gardiner also has a new chainmaille design that incorporates pearls. Please note that our air conditioning works very well in our classroom - it is suggested that you bring a sweater or wrap.

Of course, there are lots of encore classes and open sessions too including an Open Metal Studio: Metal Clay being led by Liz Reynolds. All of the details are on our website about each class and session and our staff are happy to help you register by calling the store at (416) 751-1911.
