Designing with Paper Beads
Learn how to make paper beads using using exotic, colorfully patterned handmade papers (provided) and then design and complete a finished necklace. A discourse on the history of paper and its use as decorative wearable art will begin the class. Incorporating other materials such as glass or metal beads and vintage jewelry parts will also be discussed.
One day class. 10:00am – 5:00pm, with a break for lunch. This class can be offered again.
All materials will be provided but students are encouraged to bring their own materials or papers that they would like to work with.
Examples of finished paper bead necklaces will be on exhibit and for sale at the workshop.
Material Fee: $20
