Wander With Flair

Wander with bead soups and fibers! Play with color, texture and form to create elegant, wearable art using freeform vertical netting and fibers for added pizzazz. This class will experiment with free form beadweaving and bead soups and encourage you to break rules... but always with an end design in mind!

Wander With Color

What better way to play with color than in making bead soups? Just as a painter mixes different pigments on her palette, you will learn how to make bead soups that contain depth and movement. We will focus on single palettes of color then explore ways to wash

them together. You will apply what you learn by designing and making a

color wash piece that glows!

 

On the first morning we will discuss color theory and use paint and paper to create fast and easy color palettes. We will use the color wheels and templates in EYE FOR COLOR to enhance our color palettes and explore exciting new combinations. After lunch, we will begin pulling together bead soups and creating our one-of-a-kind piece.

On day 2 we will see our project come to life!


Workshop includes coffee, mid-morning snack, lunch, wine and hor d'oeuvres each day, plus dinner on Saturday night

Your kind words from past retreats warm my heart...

“All we can say is, thank you, thank you, thank you! It was an amazing week of wonderful instruction, fabulous food, perfect location, lots of laughs ... what more could anyone have possibly wished for? I pity all those who could not attend; they missed a wonderful time with you.” - Leigh Steiner & Jan Scully

“I just wanted to thank you for being such a gracious host and fabulous teacher. Your beach home is lovely, the food was yummy, and the classes inspiring. I so enjoyed being there!” - Marlene Brannen

“I just want to drop you a line and tell you how much I enjoyed your Autumn Retreat, such a special time to be around so many creative people. I have your classroom photo up on my screen saver, so I get to relive this fun time a number of times during the day and have told my girlfriends all about each project and the wonderful healthy menu that you served each day. 


The time that you gave me is entered in my Journal of Life Time Memories.” – Barbara Jo
