Yesterday, I had six hardworking ladies in my studio for a fun class on making silk and batik fabric beads.
Five of the women had had no previous experience, yet, after much painting, gluing, cutting and wire wrapping, everyone left with a unique necklace and pair of earrings of their own making. They were very happy with their creations, and well they should be.
Speaking of classes, for anyone who had been interested in my upcoming (November 19th) class on making a "Steampunk" bracelet at Star's Beads in Vienna, but found it full, we have added a second class on Saturday, December 11, 10am-4pm, also at Star's. Call (703) 938-7018 to register. We had a long wait list from the first class and many of them have signed up, but there still may be space (eight person limit).
