I’ve been sewing beads onto things since I was a kid, and it’s always been one of my favorite processes when creating intense elements in my large-scale installations. So, I’ve developed a great project teaching my intuitive style of beading, something that most skill-levels can do, and you’ll come away with an incredible piece of wearable art. We’ll be working with felted reclaimed knit to stitch a sleek neck ring, then using my extensive collection of 100s and 100s of vintage, novelty and boutique beads, I’ll teach you to stitch a dense, lush section encrusted with beads. You’ll walk away with a gorgeous statement neck-piece, made of a sampling of my years of bead-hoarding! It will be so yummy!

IMG_0129You also get to join in the warm studio atmosphere, with tea and snacks (and wine), and conversation with others in the class as you create. Many have come in groups of friends and left with more!

IMG_0104Don’t wait to the last minute to register! Classes are cancelled a week before, if registration isn’t met.
