STAMPED BARREL BEADS
Saturday March 17, 2018
1:00 PM - 3:30 PM
Upstairs Classroom at the Montrose Texas Art Suppy
2001 Montrose Blvd.
Houston. TX 77006
We hope you will all join us for our Guild meeting on March 17th. Bob Wiley will be demonstrating his beautiful stamped barrel beads. If you would like to create along, please bring your basic tool kit, including pasta machine, work surface, acrylic roller, and clay blades. Also bring a light colored clay of your choice. Bob likes to use white pearl, but white or any other pale clay will do. In addition, you should bring translucent clay, black clay for end caps, and scrap clay for "bead guts". Finally, bring some of your favorite stamps (smaller patterns are best) and stamping ink in your favorite colors. The Guild will also bring some ink to share.
Following Bob's demo, there will be a brief tutorial on sanding and buffing, so that you can all learn to get your beads as smooth and shiny as Bob's.
We are making the swap table a regular feature of our meetings. So, bring in materials or tools that you no longer use and reduce the clutter in your creative space. Your cast offs might be just what another member needs! You also might find something that you need.
Finally, we love to see the artwork of our members! Please bring in your creations, old or recent, for our "show and tell" table.
This meeting promises to be great fun! See you all there!
REGULAR MEETINGS - WHERE AND WHEN
We meet on the third Saturday of each month from 1:00 PM to 3:30 PM. Each meeting includes Show & Tell and a Demonstration or Hands-On Program.
Our permanent meeting place is the upstairs classroom at the Montrose Texas Art Supply at 2001 Montrose Blvd, Houston TX 77006
Texas Art Supply has asked that our members park in the warehouse parking lot across the street from the main store, or in the periphery of the main parking lot, so that we don't interfere with customer parking. Please be sure to comply with this. They are being very generous in providing us with a meeting place, and we want to keep them happy!
