March 15 2014 Program and Class

March 15, 2014  Saturday Program  

Mingei Museum, Balboa Park, San Diego  10 a.m. until 12 noon.

Paulette Baron is a nationally known bead artist who is a repeating instructor at Bead and Button Show.

She has illustrated and is a coauthor of the book Beading Across America.

Her presentation for the S. D. Bead Society is called Evolution of a Design, which follows the trajectory of her work.  It shows how she creates totally different designs by using the same variation of peyote stitch.  It is always great learning experience to see and follow the thought processes of an artist in design.
