Cabin Fever? Come Create in our Workshop Space.

Posted on January 25th, 2019 in Shopping by |

No charge.  Really.  Use our creative workshop space in the back of Funky’s and create with a bead shop at your fingertips.  Wish you had that one bead in just the right color or size…not a problem.  Need just one?  We have tables full of single purchase beads!  Mix it up.  Try something new.  Use our tools.  Bring in a beverage.  Or a snack.  It’s all good at Funky Hannah’s! 

Not sure where to start?  We have dozens of free patterns to share with you.  Get what you need and create it! 

This is an open studio, not a class with staff dedicated to instruction.  But you know how helpful the Funky Gals are.  Plus we like to create too and just might join you!

Fall Bead Camp October 19-21st! Don’t miss it!

Posted on September 28th, 2018 in Bead Camp by |

Bead Camp is an amazing weekend retreat housed within the former Racine college, circa 1867, just minutes from our shop on the shore of Lake Michigan. Filled with antiques, history and charm…this all inclusive weekend is 48+ hours of creative  fun you won’t want to miss.

We have everything we need under one roof — we bead together in a large, well lit space….staff rings a bell when our meals our ready in our dining room, although our snack table is so full we joke that we have to eat before we eat.  Our simple, yet cozy, rooms are located on the second & third floors, accessible by elevator.  While bathrooms are shared…there are plenty.  It’s fun….like bead college ….in a really neat antique filled historic space.  Some people take every class offered, some don’t take any and use the time to tackle projects they’ve been sitting on or new designs they’ve been dying to try.  We laugh a lot, cheer each other on and end the weekend with new friends and memories. 

 

Guest Artist Adele Kimpell of Bead Dreamers is back! Adele and Alan join us again by popular demand to teach two classes and show case a trunk show of Adele’s designs and kits for sale during the weekend retreat!

Other exciting options include a glass pumpkin workshop at Hot Shop Glass, and Paper Beads with Funky Amanda.

Don’t miss it, or you’ll be sad!  Don’t be sad!
