Beading is one of the world’s oldest art forms and beadweaving is a beautiful off-loom technique that can be used to create anything from jewelry to wearables to home decor. In this workshop, you will learn to create Russian Leaves from award-winning fiber artist and professional beadweaver, Jenny Schu. Russian Leaves are a trademark style for Jenny as she uses them both as the main focal point in her beaded jewelry and as accents in her sculptural fine art work. In this full day workshop, participants will learn the twists and turns of weaving a beaded leaf which can then be turned into earrings or other projects. All registrants will be provided with a needle, thread, and velvet pads or trays to bead from. A suggested supply list for beads and materials will be provided to all registrants prior to the workshop, however, the instructor will also have beads and materials available for purchase the day of. Some beadweaving experience is helpful, but not necessary.
