Saturday, June 29, 11:00am - 12:30pm PT

This class is inspired by a combination of Gustav Klimt's garden paintings, Kandinsky's abstracts, and Millefiori; or Venetian glass beads. The word

Millefiori comes from the Italian "mille" and "fiori" meaning "a thousand flowers" which is the name of a distinctive style of glass bead making that dates back to ancient times.

In this workshop we'll practice layering, pattern making, and playfulness above all. This is a time to celebrate a variety of shapes and color, and the joy of spontaneity. 

Join zoom 15 minutes early (10:45am) for an informal meet and greet with the instructor and other class participants! Session instructions will begin promptly at 11:05am PT so that everyone has plenty of time to join!
