If anyone is looking for a learning holiday in an ideal setting, here’s a couple for you.  I will be teaching two workshops this summer in a couple of the most beautiful towns in Ontario.

The first will be held at the Southampton Art School in Southampton Ontario.  Located on the shores of Lake Huron just south of the best beach in Ontario (Sauble Beach)  July 7 and 8th will be two days of relaxed creativity and learning.  You will learn a lot of basic techniques, taught a few structured projects and encouraged to use thos skills to design and create something all your own.

The second is a week long workshop (July 23 to the 27th) in the beautiful town of Haliburton in the heart of cottage country.  This will be a more extensive course and will cover many techniques that will take you from beginner to intermediate wire artist.    All this while enjoying a week away in the north.  The Haliburton Art School website has a list of accommodations available for students.

Full colour, extensive tutorials will be handed out in each of these classes to insure your success in repeating these projects at a later time.  All tools required will be available for use during class.  The kit fee will include any wire, stones, and beads that you will require but feel free to bring any items you might like to incorperate into your projects.

Hope to see you there!!!

These are a couple of projects I will be teaching at the Southampton Art School.  The second piece is designed so that the bead can be taken out and replaced with a different stone for a completely different look.
