In this advanced class, alumni students will be challenged to take inspiration from one or more of three themes: Gustav Klimt’s The Lady In Gold (Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer), found objects, and geometric beadwork. Although they may seem widely divergent, selecting design elements from each and blending them into a new form will allow students to apply what they have learned previously. Diane will coach students before class via e-mails and social media.
Beads and beadwork are Diane Fitzgerald’s means of creative expression, a passion that she loves to share with others through writing and teaching. She has written 11 books and more than 100 magazine articles during her 20+ year career in the fiber arts. Diane’s love of travel has included South Africa, to study Zulu and Xhosa beadwork, and Europe and Japan to learn more about the glass bead industry, meeting fellow beaders everywhere she goes. www.dianefitzgerald.comNo tags for this post.
