January 2011: Beading Classes

2011 is here as we sweep the dust off old projects that need completing and set our sights for new endeavors, experiences and plans, Bettina and I have been creating new kits to challenge, engage and delight your senses and desires to create beautifully adorned objects through the great energy of your hands and mind.  In addition, we will be bringing back our popular designs and classes to introduce the joy of off loom weaving, beading, wire work and stringing to those of you who are new to the process.
