We're pleased to welcome the inspirational, globe-trotting, Southern California dynamos Liz and Christine Jonas, the artists behind internationally recognized jeweler Jonas and Muse. Liz and Christine will demonstrate a variety of beading techniques used in their distinctive jewelry - then let us loose to practice before we begin our own unique piece.
Jonas and Muse necklaces will be available for inspiration.
We'll provide everything you need for this delightful experience: natural materials including waxed Irish linen, natural stones, pearls, wood, and handmade metal beads from Africa. We'll also provide a light lunch, beverages, and of course a cohort of other talented and curious students.
Workshops will run Saturday afternoons from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Address in Mar Vista will be sent a week before the event.
2018 dates will be announced in the next few weeks. Please check back!
PLEASE READ THE DISCLAIMER HERE. No refunds will be honored within 24 hours of the beginning of the workshop.
