The Heart of Texas Bead Retreat
a gathering of artists and friends
About me – I love to bead and (according to my bank account) I’ve never met a bead I didn’t like. I love every single beadweaving stitch, both old and new, but my heart belongs to Peyote. Peyote has the ability to make smooth, organized, work which is perfect for the logic-loving side of me; and freeform peyote which allows my artistic self to laugh with joy at the illogical beauty of bumpy ‘unexpected pleasures’ pieces.
About The Heart of Texas Bead Retreat – I have been a Solitary Beader since I began beading. Recently I discovered the joy of beading with others and the Heart of Texas Bead Retreat was born. With Summer and Fall events each year, the goal of the Retreat is to offer workshops presented by a balanced blend of well-known and emerging designers. I am excited to bring these exceptionally talented artists together, to add to the vibrant flow of creative energy in Austin and beyond. I hope you will come bead with us and be inspired through your Heart of Texas Bead Retreat experience.
