Cheryl Pearsall, a talented, experienced jewelry maker, will teach the newly added Happy Hours Jewelry Making class which begins on Sept. 23 in Many.
Students will make a brightly colored tangerine beaded bracelet for this first class.
The class is from 1-4 p.m. at Many’s Historic Depot Museum. The fee is $25 which covers the cost of supplies and materials. A place in the class, which is expected to be popular, can be reserved by calling 727-534-1057.
Pearsall will teach the jewelry classes on the fourth Saturday of each month from September through December. Her classes are expected to be popular, so people interested in jewelry making are encouraged to call early to reserve their spots.
A native of Sabine Parish, Cheryl lived in Florida and worked for an upscale art gallery for more than 20 years. She learned to make jewelry and has been making one-of-a-kind necklaces, bracelets, and brooches for the past 16 years. Her work can be seen every Saturday at the Many Depot Guild Art Gallery.
Shanna Gaspard, president of the Depot Art Guild, works closely with the Cultural District Advisory Committee to plan art-related classes on each Saturday afternoon. She is hoping to add a photography class on the first Saturday of each month, starting in January.
Painting classes are offered on the second Saturday of each month. Crafts classes are offered on the third Saturday, and the newly added jewelry making classes are taught on the fourth Saturday.
