I have always enjoyed teaching and being able to share my jewelry making knowledge and tips. The greatest pleasure I get comes from the looks on the faces of students as they realize how able they are to create something lovely. Everyone has creativity inside them - some just need more coaxing then others!
Back in Nova Scotia, I taught beginner classes at a farm museum's tea room with my friend Debbie! Since moving to Ontario, I have taught during Techniques Nights at the Grand River Bead Society where I am a member.
Now I am pleased to announce that I will be teaching at Iguana Beads in Preston, Cambridge. This local bead store is being revamped by its new owner, Crissy Dixon. You can see more pictures of the developing store on the Iguana Beads's Facebook.
My first class planned so far is a necklace design class. This is a beginner stringing class. Rather than work with kits, Crissy has come up with a challenge tray of goodies shown in the picture above- there may be more things added to it on the day. That way, students will be able to create truly unique designs of their own.
It is a great way to design a custom necklace without having to shell out for strands of beads especially if you do not want to be "stranded" with a whole bunch of beads you do not want to use again.
