I am thrilled to announce that I have a very nice line up of classes for Bead and Button 2020. They picked seven of my classes. They include 4 new classes and three classes that I taught last year but were very popular! And even more exciting is that a photo of one of my classes is on the cover of their catalog!!!
It will be their 20th anniversary this year. And while the event has had highs and lows, it is still the biggest showroom floor and class offering available. It is a fun experience with like-minded people who are anxious to let their creativity shine. Bottom line, it is fun!
I will be teaching Sunday, May 31st through Friday, June 5th. If you didn’t get a catalog in the mail, on-line browsing is available at www.beadandbuttonshow.com. Registration opens January 7th, 2020!
New classes include:
Meditative Magic – one day class project oriented class, focus on color blends, piecing together veneers, an introduction to liquid clay and decorative work with liquid clays as well as constructing a pendant.
Getting Wabi Sabi with Liquid Clay – one day technique-oriented class, focus on liquid polymer clays and what you can do with them. This class is all about experimenting from scrafitto to stenciling!
Totally Tubular – 1/2 day project oriented class that provides a quick introduction to silk screening onto polymer clay using acrylic paints and creating a tube bead to hang on organic silk ribbons
Little Beasties – one day project oriented class, focused on combining color blends and decorative elements to construct a whimsical pin with a little movement and a whole lot of character.
Repeat classes (oldies but goodies) include:
Gone Fishin’ – one day project oriented class, focus is basic cane work and how versatile some of the simple canes are, applying cane work or veneers to decorate a basic fish skeleton, and stringing to allow movement when wearing it.
Mod Mondrian Lariat – one day project oriented class, focus is making a Mondrian inspired cane, creating veneers and constructing a focal bead and accessory beads in a lariat format.
Picasso-inspired Portraits in Polymer Clay – one day project oriented class, focus is color blends, layering design elements and playing with shapes, line work and black/white accents to create an abstracted face while constructing a pendant or pin.
I will be updating my workshop info with my 2020 schedule soon. It is a full and exciting year ahead!!
