|Fall 2015 Class Schedule|
Fraser Valley Bead Show and Komarevich Originals Present:
West Coast Metalsmiths Convention
(a weekend of metalsmithing classes and workshops)
or as we like to call it
This is NOT a Bead Show - this is a weekend of metalsmithing classes and workshops
with two pop-up stores (Komarevich Originals and Silvia Findings)
available for those who need to shop!
Check out our website at www.westcoastmetalcon.com
Metal Con is a collaboration of instructors, gathered together to offer metalwork classes that you
might not find anywhere else. We have new instructors and some past favorites from bead shows
past and hope you'll find something that peaks your interest! Komarevich Originals and Silvia Findings
will have Pop-Up Stores set up for your shopping convenience each day. We've got a few other fun
things planned and hope you'll join us to check out this new and exciting concept.
MEET THE TEACHERS
On Friday, October 21, it's MEET THE TEACHERS NIGHT at 7pm - open to everyone, no admission.
Meet the instructors, ask all kinds of questions, check out their latest designs, or purchase a piece
or two for your own collection. It will be an evening of fun, laughter and getting to know each other
a little better! Hope you'll join us!
On Saturday, October 22 at 7pm, we'll hold our first UFO PARTY! What the heck is a UFO Party, you ask?
Un-Finished-Projects Party! This party is open to all our registered students and is a chance for them to
get in the studio with a few instructors on hand to guide them through any projects that they need help
with. Students will have supervised access to the tools and equipment on hand, including rolling mills, flex
shafts, torches, and so on. This is NOT an official class, instructors will NOT be 'teaching' any specific
techniques, but you might just pick up a few tips and tricks while working on your pieces or watching
others work on their projects. Space is limited, so please make sure you register early!
Please note this is NOT A BEAD SHOW!!
We have two select vendors, open to the public during class hours - NO ADMISSION!
Komarevich Originals and Silvia Findings will be on site with their pop-up stores to serve you and
anyone else that would like to shop!
October 21 - 23
