Beading Workshops

Nationally recognized metal specialist, Kieu Pham Gray will be teaching this year plus our popular speed beading workshops.

Star’s Beads is excited to bring you a bead and craft expo called Pop Up Washington, A Bead & Craft Social Marketplace, with a mission to spread the joy of jewelry and creative arts, in the Washington DC, metropolitan area. The show will be held September 23rd and 24th at the Vienna Moose Lodge. This is a perfect location with parking, food nearby and is located across from Nottoway Park near Nutley Street in Vienna, Virginia.

Saturday we are offering “Speed Beading” workshops. These are quick one hour workshops to allow you to try your hand at several different craft techniques, all in a single day! There are some extremely talented instructor/artists that teach around the country but come from this area so it is a great opportunity to meet them and get a taste of their style. See them all VERY soon!!!

On Social Sunday, we will be offering open social tables so get your craft group organized and give yourselves a reason to get together! We will be hosting various social groups like Bead Therapy by the Northern Virginia Bead Society so come out meet new people, do some beadings, and get inspired with all the creativity in the room. Want to host your own social table? Just e-mail starsbeads@gmail.com! This is a great chance to meet other crafters and find new social groups in our local area.
