I count my lucky stars every day that I live somewhere that doesn’t get horrendous winter weather (I hate snow!!). We’ve had a really mild winter this year and we’re definitely into a lovely spring season. My spring classes are well under way and I’m really looking forward to all of them! I have a Tuesday evening Advanced Silversmithing class that just started this week and we (the students and I) put our heads together and came up with an exciting game plan for the next 7 more weeks that we’re together! Next week is making and using punches, Viking knit chains, and a continuation of a forged copper bracelet that I started with them this week. If you’re looking to take a class, I have openings in most of my Saturday classes in Chilliwack at UFV. This Saturday is Spinning Rings (always a favorite!) and next week is the insanely popular Drilled Stone Pendant class. These classes are the best value around (only $69 for 4 hours plus a kit fee – $45 for the spinning ring and $50 for the stone pendant class) and be warned that future class prices will be higher. There was a technical glitch when the classes went to print and they posted the wrong price all over the place! Get the good deal while you can! Heh heh! Oh and I have 6 people already signed up for my week long Summer Bootcamp in July! Still a few spaces left there, so if you want to spend an entire week (Monday to Friday 9am-4pm) creating and learning metal work with me, check out the UFV website and sign up! Can’t wait for that one! And while I’m talking classes, I’m putting the summer classes together for Kellie’s Bead Boutique now and hope to have them ready by the end of the month. These ones will start in June. If there’s something specific you want to see, don’t forget to let me know!! For now, I’m off to get the notes for this weekend’s classes ready. This organization thing is new to me – I like it, but it sure is hard! LOL Cheers!!
It’s definitely spring here!16 04 2015
