Culver City Bead Bazaar

It’s almost time again for the Bead Society’s Fall Bead Bazaar and we have added to our Social Media line up a bead bazaar microsite, so please take the time to check it out. Our site will continue to grow to share and give all kinds of Bead Bazaar information: www.culvercitybeadbazaar.com

It’s all about the Bead Bazaar!

The culvercitybeadbazaar.com will showcase our unique and talented artists, our array of bead vendors and our gifted demo artists. Find information on our new Make & Take Classes with Renée Raymond, who has taught jewelry classes for years and has also been one of our demo artists. Renee will have a class in the morning and afternoon.

We are also reaching out to our Hispanic communities to invite them to attend our bazaar. Contact us if you want any Bazaar postcards in Spanish to pass out to your friends and colleagues.

Our microsite will continue to cover all information about our Culver City Bead Bazaar! Stay tuned!


Welcome to the New Year!

Our Bead Society is one of those organizations that have a fiscal year that starts in July. We also tend not to meet in the summer, so September is our first meeting for the New Year (2016-2017).

On September 7th, Wednesday we will host a Problem Solving workshop at the Veterans Memorial Building in the Rotunda Room. Attendees are asked to bring in projects in progress that pose problems that are in need of creative solutions! For those seeking feedback and advice this will be the workshop for you. We will all help each other in arriving at an emotionally and aesthetically pleasing finished piece. Continue reading Welcome to the New Year!
