Please join us for this free event! The Jewelry Online Connections (JOC) is an informal way for us to gather and share. After we have a chance to say “Hi” and catch up with each other, we’ll get right into our monthly topic.
Later in the session, you’ll have an opportunity to share a project that you’re working on, get feedback on a design, or get advice from the other participants on how to solve a technical challenge.
We welcome your suggestions for future topics. If you have a topic that you’d like to host, let us know! Send your ideas to email@example.com
DATE: Wednesday, October 28
TOPIC: To Bead or Not to Bead? Demystifying The Art of Bead Weaving
HOST: Chris Eisenberg
Description: An introduction or refresher to the joys of bead weaving. Our discussion will include an overview of types of seed beads, basic tools needed and setting up a work space. If you have done some bead weaving, you are invited to share your experiences with it (good and bad) as well as any projects you have made or that are in progress. For those new to this art, let’s talk about what draws you to it or any fears that keep you at arms’ length. Our session will finish with a brief overview of the “Exploring Bead Weaving” series I will be offering at BARN along with a description of upcoming classes and projects.
