Fun with Miss Heather

Fun times ahead girls! It seemed such a long time away when we scheduled Heather's classes but time flies and one of our favorite girls south of the Red River will be here next week- Yippee!

Heather will be teaching two classes on Saturday, October 29th. A basic soldering class for those of you that want to get started and an advanced class for those of you who have completed her basic class. You will be able to take both, however, you will need to order your own equipment for the banner class. The store has the website so you can order and have it by next Saturday.

Basic Soldering
Sat., Oct. 29th, 11am-2pm
Class Pre-Requisite: None
Heather, $65

I love it when I can make people happy and I know I just made quite a few people’s day!  This class will be a basic introductory class where you’ll learn the very basics of soldering (tools, supplies, and basic jewelry charm soldering) and get to try your hand at creating at least two pendant style charms.  All supplies for this class are provided – including art for your charms.  Class size is limited to 6 so don't hesitate- you will be sorry!   
Shine Banner
Sat., Oct 29th, 3-6pm
Class pre-requisite: completed basic soldering & own equipment
Heather, $90.00
Do you ever have those moments when your family is driving you bonkers? When your "friends" feel like your biggest foe? When you're at the park, and someone is trying to small talk your child? It's in those very moments that I need a reminder to shine. Shine through the adversity and challenges and meet them head on! So with that in mind, I designed and created this sweet banner to display and remind me to meet those challenges head on.

In this quick paced class you'll create a create a large 5 lettered soldered bunting banner, using a 5 letter word that is special to you. The glass we'll be using has been custom hand cut and finished especially for this class. Additional glass will be available for purchase if you would like to create a longer word. This class is geared towards participants who have previous soldering experience and know how to wrap, solder, and attach jump rings.

In addition to a soldering station (tile, iron, stand, solder, flux & brush, clothespins/clamps, sponge, burnisher, hemostat & glass cleaner), students will need to bring the following supplies with them: hand towel, paper cutter, scissors, pencil, glitter glue, flat nosed jewelry pliers. Feel free to bring any small jewelry bits and baubles also to customize your banner! Please come prepared with what word you would like to use, as we'll be cutting them during class.

Heather will also be here for Glitter Market on November 19th and has graciously agreed to teach another beginner soldering class on Friday, Nov. 18th from 1-3pm and an advanced soldering crown class also on the 18th from 3-6 pm.  What a trooper!
