La Guilde is proud to welcome artists, Judy and Cruz Anderson, to lead a beading workshop as part of the Beading Now! exhibition. Cruz Anderson will first guide participants in creating a graffiti on a sheet of paper. Judy Anderson will then assist them in reproducing their graffiti on a piece of fabric and beading the outline. Participants will be able to leave with their creations.
