Thursday July, 9 – Sunday July, 12
I am looking forward to another great experience at the Puget Sound Bead Festival in Tacoma, WA. I will be teaching 4 workshops this year. Classes Begin on Thursday, July 9 with a Reception for Teachers that same evening.
This is a very special show. Small and intimate, the show is held in a wonderful setting, the Hotel Murano l in Tacoma. Owned and operated by Vicki Lareau, her husband Mark and their amazing staff of talented people. Teachers and vendors are treated so well! I feel respected and cherished when working at the Puget sound Bead Festival.
The Hotel Murano has a glass arts oriented décor. It is a beautiful place to stay or visit! A wonderful area to take walks, this area of Tacoma is very easy to navigate. Walk around and you will find sculptures throughout the neighborhood. Historic buildings, lots of flowers, the arts and great café’s are everywhere!
Close to the Hotel Murano, the host hotel to the PSBF, there is a free light rail line. You can hop on and hop off all along the rail line and easily get to know the neighborhood. Tacoma is home to the famous Glass Museum. Just taking the walk across the bridge to the museum grounds is an amazing experience. A display of Dale Chihuly’s work is above and on either side of you are many fabulous pieces of blown glass work. So cool!! Don’t miss it.
I hope to see you in class, at the Teacher’s Showcase or while shopping for beads!
