Sarah Go Bragh...

We are so ready for Spring to really be here. We have been getting teases and freezes, but the end of winter is in sight. We are getting excited to see Sarah Shriver, too. She is coming from, Friday, April 4th thru Sunday, April 6th for two fun workshops. On Friday, she is teaching her iconic fish bone cane and more importantly, you will see how you can reduce graphic images into manageable 'bites' to make your own canes.  

These techniques will carry you forward into the realm of complex caning so you can make other representational canes with ease. With your new found skills you will make a wonderful bracelet with using finishing ideas suggested by Sarah.  You can include borders, spirals and other graphic elements.

During the two day class Sarah will show you how to make a wonderful kaleidoscoped, interlocking patterned cane with her signature Celtic flair. Sarah has a unique way of using skinner blends and inclusions to create abstract canes that she builds into graceful patterns. You will learn valuable bead construction techniques and finishing techniques that will raise your skill level to a new plateau. A phone call and a credit card can secure your place for the weekend. You don't want to miss the fun!
