seminars, how-to demos, make-n-takes and miniworkshops when up live on the show's website. All of which are included with your admission.
Here are the details for the three seminars that Maria will be presenting during the show.
Beadwork: Beyond the Kit
Kits are great for learning a technique and beading a ready made style. Once you've mastered the project, it can be repeated in so many different ways. Maria shares techniques on how you can transform an existing pattern into your own unique creation and will inspire you with wonderful examples of designs that go beyond the kit.
Room 105, Friday @ 2:30, Saturday @ 4:30
Beadwork: ABC’s of BeadingThis original presentation, inspired by Maria’s blog series “ABC’s of Creativity” highlights examples of bead types, variety of stringing materials available and different tools that can be used for beading. Learn to make the best choices on what to use for different techniques and what's best for your project. Plus, get tips on best use of colour along the way.
Room 105, Friday @ 10:30
Properly finished beadwork is essential to its enjoyment and wearability. Learn about different types of clasps and beaded closures. Get instruction on how to attach and direction on what's best suited to different types of beadwork. Examples of incredibly finished pieces will be shown to inspire you.
Room 105, Saturday @ 10:30
