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!
