Classes with Teresa Sullivan
We are excited to have Teresa teach classes for us in July! Teresa is a master at creating hollow, sculptural beadwork, and will be sharing her vast knowledge and techniques. Her work has been exhibited in galleries across the nation, featured in books and magazines, and she has taught internationally. Her work generally has a fascinating story behind it as well, making the pieces even more wonderful. Teresa is an excellent instructor and brings a sense of fun and imagination to her classes. These classes are a once in a lifetime education in sculptural beadwork! You can see more of her art and story at www.teresasullivanstudio.com.
