Course Overview

Discover the magic of “painting with beads” with your choice of seven different bead designs. In this course, artist Jo Wood will lead you through your choice of bead-embroidered projects and then framing your finished piece. Based on her popular pin designs on felted wool, the birch tree (your choice of four seasons) captures this most memorable tree of the North. The lady slipper reflects the natural beauty of Minnesota’s state flower. The dragonfly is playful in color and dimension. It’s a unique and rewarding project to expand your creative palette. Participants will go home with a framed piece of bead and fiber art. Jo’s goal is to demystify the process and materials of bead embroidery. 

Her personal style, which reflects both tradition and innovation, can be viewed on her website by visiting jowoodbeads.com. This course is open to students ages 8+ with hand stitching experience if accompanied by an adult; call to receive intergenerational discount. Youth ages 14+ may participate as an adult.
