COVID-19 isn’t stopping us from bringing you the best instructors from around the world! Thanks to Zoom and technology, we are proud to bring Betty Stephan and Jean Power to BeadFX in 2021. Both are award winning and accomplished bead artists and instructors.
Betty’s bead embroidery classes are focused on learning but at the same time are relaxed and a lot of fun! Her years of beading and teaching experience and the detailed, illustrated instructions provide the guidance needed to finish her beautiful class projects.
Jean’s spectacular geometric beadwork explores shape and structure. Her designs are easily personalized to reflect your own style.
Betty’s and Jean’s classes will be virtually broadcast using Zoom and will be done live. That means you’ll be able to ask questions, see live demos of techniques and join in the conversations with the instructors and your fellow students. Best of all, you can attend from anywhere in Canada, the United States and the world!
