Join MaryEllenBeads at Art Unraveled July 31 – August 8, 2017

Third quarter brings a list of opportunities, not the least of which is the Art Unraveled 2017 event. I’m doing the happy dance because I’m an accepted presenter at one of the country’s most popular art retreats which takes place each August in Phoenix, AZ

Internationally known instructors, participants from across the country and more than 125 workshops make this a do-not-miss event.

I’m thrilled to offer three workshops at this fabulous event. Since readers of this blog know how I roll, expect me to review other classes I participate in during the week long event.

Popular Crochet Necklace Workshop at Art Unraveled 2017

“I go by Feel,” my crochet necklace workshop takes place Tuesday evening, August 1, 2017.

These necklaces are exceptionally popular in the summer because they’re lightweight and great for travel. In past posts I’ve alluded to the old blues song, “I Go By Feel.” Yes, in answer to popular requests, I always have a recording of this favorite playing in the background during the workshop. Why not relax after a long day and learn a skill that will bring ongoing joy?

Participats will be able to choose from a variety of colored pearls. If you’ve not signed up for an evening workshop at Art Unraveled 2017, consider this one.
