Fundamentals, skills, and techniques covered:

Your beaded bird will take flight as you use bead embroidery, bead crochet, and origami stars as well as the instructor's cone and spiral making tools and mixed media materials on your birds. Instructors will work individually with student as they customize their bird. As the photos show the finished birds will look nothing alike. Kenny Hallstead, state fair award winner who made the scarab inspired bird (in the photograph with the dagger bead wings) hopes to co-teach this class with Margo based on availability. This mentored lab style class will encourage design sharing, innovation, and getting to know your classmates. You WILL NOT complete this project in class.
