Canada Day

We will be closed Monday July 2nd in honour of Canada Day. We hope you are able to spend some time taking in the sites and festivities happening in your town or city. It is always a pleasure to see the patriotic spirit when we celebrate this fine country we call home.


Classes and Workshops

We are taking a short break from our regularly scheduled classes. A new schedule will begin in August.
If there are new techniques you would like us to teach, please let us know. We would be glad to look into new classes.

Upcoming Workshops


How to bead a portrait

Presented by William Hodge, he will show you how to take a photograph or print and transform it into a beaded portrait. The technique is also suitable for using any photograph as your design inspiration. As a full portrait can take hours to complete, you will be taught the "gourd stitch" and learn how to use it to create any image desired. At the end of the workshop, participants will know everything needed to produce a portrait or any visual image desired using seed beads.

Sunday June 3rd - 10am to 4pm - $125 (with a break for lunch)

A look ahead to the Fall.


We feel privileged to again have Naomi Smith from Neyaashiinigmiing (CapeCroker), Ontario as a workshop leader. Naomi is actively involved in educating others about the ways of the First Nations people of the Woodlands and Northeastern area often through the story of beads. For over 25 years, she has designed and created traditional Native beadwork. In addition to teaching these techniques, she provides valuable insight into the history and symbolism that are the inspiration for her projects and the culture of her people.
