May’s B&B was held at Aimee’s studio. Aimee makes the coolest glass straws!
Before going into Aimee’s studio for a demo, we enjoyed the warm “summer like” evening out on her 2 level patio. We enjoyed guacamole & chips, various sweets, iced tea and of course beer!
The theme this month was a tool swap. We also discussed the upcoming 40 bead challenge. Melanie demonstrated a dot bead and Aimee demonstrated the Mandrel Spinner by Bearfoot Art.
In June the Pacific Pyros will be challenging the Calgary Molten Crew to this challenge. All the proceeds of this challenge will go to the Beads of Courage. In order to get the benefit of the actual 40 bead challenge each person will have to follow the rules of Heather Trimlett’s 40 Bead Challenge. That means using on 2 colours of glass and NO tools.
Melanie Graham will be available to anyone entering this challenge to assist with colour selection if need be. She can offer advise on what colours work well together or if you want to step outside of the box, she can suggest some interesting colour or glass combinations. Want a real challenge?? try black and red !!
