Program for June 21, 2014

Naomi Sakuma Japanese Bead Artist and Teacher
Naomi Sakuma comes to us after doing the Bead and Button show in Milwaukee where has taught every year since 2007.

She is a native of Tokyo where she lives and runs Studio Metiers with two other artists and teaches classes at home. 

Her specialty is bead looming in which she excels in making pieces with rich colors in spite of the limited palette of colors available in glass beads.

We are very lucky to have her at this time.

She won first place in Beads Bienniale 2013 competition of TOHO company with her special loomed beadwork lanterns.
