Carol Cypher - Beading Classes

International Beading Classes - Monday, 4th of April
I am very delighted and priviledged to have Carol Cypher, who is visiting from the States, teaching at Crafty Frog on Monday 04 April.

She will be teaching 2 three hour classes and you are more than welcome to make a day of it.  For those who are attending for the day I will provide morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea.  Those who attend either the morning or afternoon session will of course be provided with refreshments.

Raku and Rivoli Bracelet
Raku and Rivoli Bracelet  Enjoy a taste of polygon stitch using only two stitches per round to whip up this bracelet that combines the look of matte raku with the sparkle of glass and crystal.
Employ the interesting thread path of polygon stitch, unlike any other stitches you know, first passing through a bead, then picking up beads for the stitch and anchoring them by passing under thread between beads. Bead a beautiful textured bezel utilizing that same thread path concept to embrace and secure a rivoli that serves as both a focal element and closure. The bracelet transitions to herringbone on the far end, acting as a buttonhole that frames the rivoli when worn.

Midsummer's Night Bracelet
Midsummer's Night Bracelet  Create a sparkling fabric of Swarovski crystals using a double-needle method of right-angle weave. Learn the little mantra that propels you through row after row.

Embellish the surface while increasing the integrity of the beadwork by the addition of miniscule golden charlottes, swarovski elements and drops. A magnetic tube closure lends a jewellery store touch to this refined and elegant piece. Don't expect to finish in class.

Beginning Beading - Classes
Don't worry if you see a project of Carol's that you like, however, have had limited beading experience....   Lexie will be running beginner beading, and basic tubular peyote courses prior to Carols classes.

You must book in for all classes, as numbers are limited and places are offered on a first come-first served basis.

Creative Tapestry

To date the only class we have run is Helen's Creative Tapestry course.  The demand for it has been huge and constant, so we started it in January.  If you are interested in producing a Tapestry that is out of the ordinary, then this is the class for you.

It is run on the second Saturday of every month - the next class will be held on Saturday 10 April from 10am-12 noon.  Helen is an accredited Tapestry teacher and is a real inspiration to her students.  You can attend just one of her classes, or every month.

Re-Opening of The Crafty Frog
After 10 months of being closed, having all our stock written off, all our fittings cleaned, new (bouncier) carpet, new paint job and re-ordering and processing all new stock Crazy Frog (as the workman were calling us) is back.  An indication of the new stock that has been put on the shelves is shown at the right under SHOP STOCK.  This is by no means all of the stock in the shop and new stock continues to arrive daily.

We have not advertised our return to business previously, so if this is your first email from us in ages don't panic - we haven't (hopefully) lost your details and you will, from now on, be receiving regular newsletters, email updates, and invitations to subscriber only events.

Over the coming months my hope is to send you regular updates of new stock arrivals, new class additions, and any events happening at the shop.
We will regularly post on Face Book, Twitter and our Blog.  Sign up for any or all of these and you will receive notification immediately as new stock arrives.
