What’s better than a big pile of beads? Turning them into new beads! Join us for a week of exploring the world of beads—the dodecahedron and its many embellishments, as well as simpler ways to create beaded beads. The goal is to cover at least one new bead a day, although on some we may explore several different designs. Multiple stitches will be used and experimentation is encouraged. A great way to use up your stash!
Francie Broadie has been beading and teaching beadwork in the Midwest for the last 22 years, 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 hold 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.
