We’ve been planning an extended trip to the bay area for my husband to take classes at UC Berkeley for months. The time is finally approaching and I am excited to share that I have set up about 20 classes at various places in the area to teach.
You can find me at the Venetian Bead Shop in Santa Clara, CA on May 26th for a Beading Basics Classes. I am really excited about this class because the students get to pick and choose their beads from a huge and beautiful selection of Venetian glass beads. Every design will be unique to the student. I think that it is going to be a lot of fun.
You can find me at Just Bead It in Concord, CA on June 16th and July 29th. I will be teaching knitting on a spool, how to make cool earrings using Soft Flex beading wire and a brand new class from my new book Seed Bead Revolution that uses Soft Touch beading wire to weave dragon scale beads. We even will dabble in patina during that class!
You can find me at Blue Door Beads in Oakland, CA on June 23rd-24th and July 15th. I will be teaching russian spiral, how to make cool earrings using Soft Flex beading wire and knitting on a spool. This will be the only opportunity to catch my russian spiral class in the bay area!
What trip to the bay area would be complete without a fun event at Soft Flex Company’s home office and gallery? You will be able to find me there most Wednesdays from now until August for a visit when the gallery is open. But, if you want to take a class, I will be teaching two classes in Sonoma, CA on July 22nd. You can learn how to knit on a spool using Soft Flex beading wire with some unique components from Soft Flex Company and my fun earrings class (which teaches you everything that you’d ever want to know about crimping). These classes are not posted yet but should be available soon.
I hope that you will join me in one of these many classes. I love to teach and share my passion for beading with others! This is going to be an AMAZING summer!
