Beading at the Museum of Beadwork with Betsy Youngquist and Nancy Josephson

October 21st-28th, 2023

Join internationally recognized teachers/artists Betsy Youngquist and Nancy Josephson for an exciting week turning unadorned substrates into magical, evocative works of art. We'll teach you every technique we know to create your own piece of art using various glues, adhesives, bits and pieces and, of course, BEADS! In this no sew workshop you'll leave having learned (and mastered) our very particular ways of adhering beads to any surface you can think of. The artwork you create during the week will be the training wheels for what's next as you take what you've learned back out into the big wide world.
