Links, Promotions, Classes

Happy Friday,

The weekend is here, and I am looking forward to it.

Today I wanted to share the upcoming classes that are available through Jo-Ann Fabric and Crafts Store, here in Boise, ID. Located at 1085 N. Milwaukee, (208) 323-5373.  Jewelry classes are taught in the downstairs classroom.  (Across the street from Home Depot). 

February's Classes are still available and range from $30.00 to $35.00 per person.  Two hour sessions are offered, and include; instruction, a field trip through the store, a ten minute break, and time for questions, plus you get a lovely handmade project to take home with you.

Like Swarovski Crystal elements, but don't like the retail price?  Jo-Ann's has lots of glass bead alternatives that come in the right sizes and look just as pretty in your finished piece.

This month as well as next, classes feature Swarovski Crystals elements in 6mm Bi-cone shaped beads.

Jewelry Basics is not required to take any of the project classes.  If you would like to try it without committing to an entire project, the 2-1/2 session includes, an overview of Tools and Techniques, a field trip through the store, and a completed project to take home at the end of class.  *Some tools are provided during class time.  We ask students arrive with two pairs of pliers and material to complete the class.  If you would like to wait until class time to purchase your project needs that is also fine.  We'll even ring you up at the counter right next to the classroom.

Jewelry 101 - 2-1/2 hr. Session - $35.00 This class is offered every month.

These projects vary by month, but beginning, intermediate and advanced classes are offered every month.

All of the above classes are lead by Alixandra Browning, owner / designer of The Alchemists Vessel.  Class instructions and materials lists are provided by Spotted Canary School.

Don't feel like taking any of the above the classes but would like something new, different and challenging?

May and June will be beginning Chainmaille and other Jewelry Projects given through Little Shop of Artists, meeting at Bella's Grove, or Jo-Ann's Upstairs Classroom.

All class materials and tools will be handed out prior to class.  Students are expected to come with an open mind, relaxed hands, and a desire to create.  Curious?  Sit in's are always welcome, contact The Alchemists Vessel for details.

Thank you for stopping by and having a look.

The Alchemists Vessel would like to wish you a pleasant day.
