Southern Colorado Bead Society Annual “Bead Retreat”

I will be appear­ing at the South­ern Col­orado Bead Society’s “Annual Bead Retreat” in Col­orado Springs, CO to present a class on “How to Loom with Two Hole Beads”. With all of the dif­fer­ent types of two-hole beads hit­ting the shops recently, project made with these beads are gen­er­at­ing a LOT inter­est when they are dis­played on our table at the major bead shows. These beads pretty much got their start with the intro­duc­tion of the Tila beads by Miyuki a few years ago. Now, not only do we have the Tila beads, we have the “Half-Tilas” (same width, half as long), Super Duo beads, Brick beads (in sev­eral shapes), and the brand new “Bi-Bo” beads from The BeadSmith.

The class at South­ern Col­orado Bead Society’s “Bead Retreat” will fea­ture sev­eral dif­fer­ent tech­niques for using all of these beads as well as how to manip­u­late the beads on The Ricks Bead­ing Loom to cre­ate some truly fas­ci­nat­ing projects. Once the new loom artist mas­ters these tech­niques, the imag­i­na­tion is your only limitation.

Join us the the SCBS 2014 Bead Retreat if at all pos­si­ble. I will not be the only instruc­tor pre­sent­ing classes as sev­eral other nation­ally known instruc­tors will be there as well show­ing lots of inter­est­ing and beau­ti­ful project classes.
