|multi strand bracelet|
I'll be teaching my first class for beginners at the excellent Bird On A Wire on Main Street (at Broadway) in Vancouver this Friday, 21st January. The first class will cover basic chain stitch and we will make a wonderful multi-stranded bracelet. The following Friday there will be another class and a new stitch to be practised with a stunning gemchip wire mesh cuff as the result.

My workbench is back in action fulltime once more following the festive break. As you can see, there's a lot of wire and fibre going on in preparation for the Roots gallery exhibition opening at Leigh Square in Port Coquitlam on January 21st. I'm in final push mode, getting e erything together. My thoughts are whirling around moss and lichens and trees, oh my!
