Get wired this summer with art classes at the Centre

Let your creativity take over during the Cultural Centre’s summer jewellery-making classes

Summer is just around the corner, and so is the Chilliwack Cultural Centre’s new lineup of incredible art classes. The fabulous selection is sure to add a bit of fun and excitement into your summer as these inspiring classes teach you the joys of jewellery making.

For those looking to create their own jewellery, the workshops happening through the summer offer an assortment of lessons to teach you the basics of jewellery making.

Wire Writing explores wire techniques that can be used to create pictures and words with wire, which can then be used make dazzling pendants, earrings, bracelet focals as well as fun links and chains.

While Reef Knot Bracelets focuses on using square knot patterns to create beautiful bracelets, anklets or necklaces to showcase stunning hand made lampwork beads.

For those who have an interest in the art of Enameling, the Cultural Centre is offering a class that will show you how to create a stacked-disk adjustable flower ring with instructor Alicia Champ.

If you’re looking for a creative outlet to practice your art, the Open Glass Studio and Open Clay Studio offer a space to hone your skills in glass-bead making and practice on the wheel or hand building. The Open Studios are non-instructional sessions and are perfect for anyone short on time with a desire to construct and create.

Private classes for either small groups or individuals can also be arranged throughout the summer. Perfect for birthday parties, girls’ nights out, or getting the hang of that one tricky medium through one-on-one guidance from one of our talented instructors.

Registration for all classes is now available, but sign up soon because spots are filling up fast. For more information or to register for a class, visit www.chilliwackculturalcentre.ca, call 604-391-SHOW(7469), or stop by The Centre Box Office.
