oh almost forgot news from the last class!!! I think it went extra swell we had a nice show and tell section of the class that seems to be growing nicely, everyone learned at least one way of making box weave, we started up the surprise project system(more on that below), and started talking about the mailing group event I just mentioned above. I did forget to ask what folks wanted to see in the next class though so feel free to let my know your thoughts.
NEW CLASS FEATURES!!!
Show and tell:
bring anything you have made from keychains to super involved inlays and tell us a bit about it and let us ogle the shiny things last class I got to see a set of earrings with a matching bracelet, the beginnings of a flag inlay, a collection of seed pieces from previous classes, and a few other extra swell things that im super excited about
Surprise project system:
going forward I will bring some item to the class and anyone who feels brave or adventurous enough may have it for free. you use it in a project of your choosing and show it off to the class during our show and tell bit. no time limit or further requirements. this last class I handed out some copper scales that I had previously added a patina to and some shiny stone bead connector thingies I cant recall the name of just now. To find out what goodies I will have for you next you will just have to attend a class and find out. XD
due to repeated requests i will be ordering colored rings!!! they will most likely require a small additional cost but im seeing what i can do to keep costs down so no worries. also i am considering getting some saw cut rings to promote good closures.
now I really have to get back to work because my boss seems not to believe that I could be this involved in anything work related and has stopped accepting “just a minute”.
