Rose will teach the Woven Wheat Bracelet, a form of Herringbone Stitch. Using a Czech Bead and variety of embellishments and clasps makes this bracelet fast, interesting and extremely popular for beginners. Participants will receive a kit with all materials including full color step-by-step instructions and photos. Prize Drawings will add to the fun.
Rose was trained as a classical Silversmith by Joe Silveria at Mesa College and Mendocino Art Center. She took her first bead weaving class four years ago and fell in love with the magic of weaving tiny little beads into intricate and beautiful jewelry. In 2016, Rose won the first ever "Grand Slam" on the annual bead cruise. No person had ever won first place in every contest before. Rose has taught Bead Weaving at Beverly's Fabrics, Creative Gatherings and at various private parties and classes. She sells her jewelry at various boutiques.

Plein Air at Historic Rancho Mariposa
Enjoy a day of painting, sketching and socializing in the fresh air at Cathy Monroe’s amazing Rancho Mariposa in Redwood Valley. There are beautiful views of redwoods, oaks, and interesting structures including barns, an old tractor, gardens, a lily pond, an orchard, wildflowers and everything you would expect on an historical ranch or farm. You will not need to hike to reach your preferred site amongst the many extraordinary sites available. This will be an amazing day for everyone.
There will be no instructor; create on your own among fellow members and their guests, using your preferred medium. At the end of the day, a Group Critique will be held while enjoying refreshments.
MATERIALS: Bring your easel, canvas, painting and drawing materials, a chair, sunscreen and bug repellant, and remember your lunch!
