This month, please join HCCC to create a beautiful beaded wire ornament for the holidays. Participants will learn how to create an ornament by stringing beads on wire, wrapping the wire around a balloon, and then popping the balloon to reveal a decorative sphere. Kids can choose beads in a variety of colors and sizes to personalize their ornaments.
Please join us for an artist talk and casual chat with ceramist Elizabeth DeLyria and metalsmith Mary Rogers. Both are well known for their exquisite handling of materials and sophisticated, mature styles. The artists will talk about their sources for inspiration and show how they have developed their individual aesthetics. (Artist talks begin at 12:00 PM.) Read More »
