Bring your fabric scraps, embroidery floss, beads, broken jewelry parts, found objects, etc., and join us for a fun and creative weekend. This class will explore ways to use those bits and pieces, turning them into one-of-a-kind jewelry. Paper piecing, yo-yo’s, pompoms, tassels, wrapping, making cabochons and fabric beads are some of the techniques we’ll cover.
Francie Broadie has been beading and teaching beadwork in the Midwest since 2000, including the Bead and Button Show in Milwaukee and Bead Fest in Philadelphia. She is well-versed in bead weaving and glass fusing, having studied with multiple teachers since 1995. She holds a bachelor’s degree from Kenyon College and a Master of Arts degree from the University of Indianapolis. Seed beads are Francie’s favorite, but she will bead anything. Her goal in life is to cram as much ‘beady info’ into her brain as possible. In her spare time Francie stitches, knits, sews, paints and dabbles in photography.
