"Gerdany Tour" & Snowflakes in Ivano Frankivsk

Ivano-Frankivsk Region embroidered by Lubov Drohomyretska, 2011

In between visits and further research about beadwork, I had the opportunity to show the "Tour of Gerdany Regions of Ukraine" at the Regional Educational Methodological Center (ОНМЦ) on Aug 30th.

This was followed by a Master Class on making my famous Fan Wheel Snowflakes. I translated the instructions into Ukrainian with an overview sheet and brought the necessary materials.

It was nice to to have young students and esteemed bead artists in the Master Class.
