I am so excited that the Bead Society of Greater New York has arranged for Gail Crosman Moore to teach 2 classes here in NYC on March 1 and 2, 2014. 

Felt Making
The March 1 class will be Felt Making and runs from 10am-4pm at FIT. Covered will be coil, flat and needle felting. Many bits and parts will be created that we will turn into brooches, lariats, etc. Students need only to bring a shoe box size Tupperware-type container, a cookie sheet, a bath size towel and your favorite seed beads. A kit will be available for $35 containing: wool fleece, felting needles, sequins and findings.
Fee: $95 members ($105 non-members) - ONLY PAID RESERVATIONS WILL BE ACCEPTED

Goldie Bronze Clay Components

The March 4 class with introduce us to bronze clay and will also run from 10am-4pm at FIT.  In this class we will explore the working qualities of Goldie Bronze clay. It can be carved, textured, molded and sculpted. The color of the clay is warm. Focus will be on toggles, connectors, finials, buttons, etc. This will keep your work unique from now on! Kit fee: $45 100 grams of dry clay. Class includes use of tools, if you don't have them, modeling compound, kiln and materials.
Fee: $95 members ($105 non-members) - ONLY PAID RESERVATIONS WILL BE ACCEPTED

I have signed up for both classes.  I am particularly intrigued by the bronze clay session because it is a chance to play with a new medium without having to invest in any tools.
