June 4 - 6, 2018
Bead & Button Master Class
Workshop:
Beadwork & Metal: Meet in the Middle

Beadwork & Metal - Meet in the Middle  ©2017 by Cynthia Rutledge

I'm excited to be teaching another Master Class at Bead & Button in 2018.

The best of both worlds come together in this workshop to explore the process of creating miniature boxes. In the 18th century, Grand Tours were "de rigueur" for the royal families of Europe and wealthy young men experiencing life before settling into the demands of having a family, along with couples on their honeymoon.
