Wire-Wrapped Rings: Sunday, August 8, 1PM
The class project is the Pharoah's ring (scroll down to the Hidden Bead Ring Picture - this is very similar to Pharoah's ring; then imagine it with a big shiny faceted Swarovski Rivoli!), with a Swarovski Rivoli crystal as the focal bead - this is a blingy project!
The class project will look very similar to the ring shown here at the right - except that this is a 4-prong setting with a Swarovski Rivoli crystal. Prong settings are difficult for beginners, so Daniel has modified this ring to teach it as a Pharoah's ring, with the same Swarovski Rivoli, so it is easier, but just as stunning.
Introduction to Art Clay Silver: Saturday, August 21, 10:30 AM (this will be the LAST opportunity to take Intro Art Clay Silver until next year - Angela will be building on these skills in some of her more advanced classes for the rest of the year). No kidding folks - last intro class this year. Angie has some terrific advanced classes to offer, and we are moving on!
Photopolymer Clay: Saturday, September 11, 10:30 AM. One of Angela's Advanced Art Clay classes, this class will teach you how to make your own stamps. We don't have this project on the YaYa Beads page - Angie hasn't taught it in over 3 years, but everyone loved it the last time she offered it. We also don't have an example in the shop right now, but Angie promises me she will get me one ASAP. But basically, you learn how to design and make your own stamps that you can use on Art Clay projects or in Cold Connections - or I guess even for plain old stamping on paper!
Wire-Wrapped Beaded Bangle Bracelet ("Maggie's Bracelet"): Sunday, September 12, 1PM. This bracelet combines traditional wire-wrapping techniques with beads - and you can use a wide choice of bead sizes and shapes, so be prepared to arrive early for class, so that you can make your selection!
Just 2 of the many variations on Maggie's beaded bangle - one with 4mm copper round beads, one with hand-woven peyote beads.
Cold Connections: Saturday & Sunday, Sept. 18-19, 9 AM - 6 PM (2-day workshop)
Viking Knit: Monday, September 20, 10:30 AM - 5 PM - this is wire-weaving class, taught by Kathy Morris. There are many, many applications for this technique, but the class project will be a copper bracelet, and you will also learn to make you own starter, so that you can continue to make more Viking Knit once you leave class!
Wire-Wrapped Celtic Necklace AND Celtic Earrings: Sunday, September 26, 1PM
These are 2 different projects, and 2 different techniques - and, obviously, they don't match - but both are Celtic.
OK - that is it for formal class schedule updates at this time. Please call the shop to register, or if you have any questions!
