March 25th General Meeting - Laura McCabe
The creative process is organic and dynamic. It is also often beyond the control of the one doing the creating. The ebb and flow only starts to become clear in retrospection. In this lecture, accompanied by a slide show encompassing 20 years of beadwork, Laura will provide a little hindsight as to the creative process that chose her.
Laura McCabe is a primarily self-taught beadweaver with an education in historical costume reproduction and restoration, and anthropology. She produces elaborately beaded body adornment that combines Native American, African Zulu, and Victorian beadweaving techniques with modern materials and color schemes. She exhibits her work in national and international beadwork exhibitions, and sells her finished work at boutiques and galleries throughout the United States, as well as through her website: www.lauramccabejewelry.com. She maintains a working studio in Mystic, Connecticut, and teaches beading workshops across the US and throughout the world.
Laura is also teaching a 3-day class the weekend before. For more information, visit the Classes page.
