From September to June, the Toronto Bead Society usually meets on the second Wednesday of every month at Ryerson University, 380 Victoria Street (East of Yonge, Between College and Dundas). Please check our Meeting Schedule for actual dates.
If you like to learn, look and talk about beads, we invite you to join our society.
Oct 12, 2016 - TBS Members’ Show & Tell - My First, My Best and All the Rest
We want to see how our members have progressed throughout the years, so bring in your first, your best, your worst, your favorite, your most challenging, etc.--we want to see them!
As beadworkers, we’re always learning new techniques, tips and tricks and playing and experimenting with our beads. Some techniques we master within a few minutes, others, we find frustratingly challenging. Either way, we need to celebrate our growth and beading accomplishments! Here are some ideas...
- What was your first Bag-of-Beads Challenge?
- What is your favorite beadwork project?
- What was your most challenging beadwork piece?
To sign up, e-mail our Programming Coordinator by Monday, October 10 and let us know how many pieces you will be presenting. Members may present up to 3 items.
Also at this meeting:
- Volunteer of the Year Award
- Color Palette Summer Challenge Reveal
- Fall Bead Fair Volunteers
- December Techniques Project Night
- Bag-of-Beads Challenge
- Distribute Bead Fair Postcards & Posters
2016 Summer Pallet Challenge
Members enjoyed last summer's beaded ornament project and have been asking for a Summer Challenge this year. This challenge is limited by your imagination only.
Your mission, should you choose to accept...
From the color palette below, develop a beaded creation:
- all palette colors must be included
- feel free to add any additional colours
- bring your creation, finished or not, for the big reveal to our October 12th Meeting. (Please note: you now have one more month to complete your challenge!)
