Make Your Own Beadwork Owl at Audubon on Wednesdays, September 6 and 13

Make Your Own Beadwork Owl at Audubon on Wednesdays, September 6 and 13

Jamestown, NY – You can learn to make a beautiful beadwork owl pendant to wear or give as a gift.

Bead artist Anne Jackson will instruct the 1-3 p.m. workshop on Wednesdays, September 6 and 13 at Audubon Community Nature Center (ACNC).

You can show off a bit of nature by learning beading techniques used to make a charming owl pendant. You will work with small seed beads and some medium size beads while learning to weave them into a pendant that you will want to wear every day.

It will take two sessions to create this piece of art, and you may need to work on the owl at home between sessions in order to complete it by the end of the second class.

No prior beading experience is needed to take this class.

Be sure to bring your glasses if you need them for close-up work.

Jackson is a member of the Chautauqua County Society of Artists. She has taught beading for more than two decades, both privately as well as at Audubon.
