Bead Society of San Diego

I have an opportunity to return to San Diego on March 19th & 20th. I was in San Diego last year for a photography workshop. However, I didn't get a chance to explore as it was just a month after coming down with a nasty case of the shingles. Sure didn't want to go and look at things as it was all I could do to extract something useful out of the workshop itself.

So, here's what I'll be doing........

Presentation:A Short History of Bead-Crochet, and the work of Judith Bertoglio-Giffin
The fashioning of beaded articles today is not a fad but a continuation of the process of bead artistry begun long ago. Judith will present slides and talk about the historical context of bead crochet ropes. She will then delve into her personal journey of learning, publishing and teaching the time honored woman’s craft of bead crocheted ropes. The presentation will be heavily illustrated with photo examples of the technique.
Books, DVD and a limited number of kits will be available for sale 
Workshop: Textural Elements for Bead-Crochet Ropes
An intermediate workshop that shows you how to add texture, shape and style to bead crocheted ropes. You will be presented with at least 4 texture patterns and learn how to add in thread. You will string and crochet a sampler that may then be used as a key ring, bracelet or one end of a lariat. Kits will be available at the workshop.
