Summer 2017 Workshops

Sam Norgard

For years I have been working on developing an Art Retreat in Nova Scotia. This summer we will have our inaugural workshop! My family is relocating to my Fairy God Mom’s (Rosa) house and our house with the separate schoolhouse studio will be available for residence and workshop! I will be a short walk away! For many years I have taught beading at the Savannah College of Art and Design. Our workshop will focus on geometric beadwork while integrating design information to help you develop your own visual voice. You need to have off loom bead weaving experience for the workshop.
