Monday May  15, 2023 - Sharl Smith **Special Monday Meeting**

We continue to meet virtually via Zoom. TBS members will be sent the link via email the week of the presentation.

Join us for a joint presentation of the TBS and Grand River Bead Society on Monday, May 15th (the GRBS night) at our usual 7pm - 9pm meeting time.

Sharl G. Smith is an artist based out of Waterloo, Ontario, Canada. Through a process called bead-stitching, she produces each piece by hand-stitching glass beads together, one bead at a time.

Sharl's art practice is informed by her architectural background and especially her training in a Zen Buddhist design/build firm in California which specialized in hand-crafted architecture through Japanese Joinery. Her time there has left a lasting impression on her and has instilled a deep reverence for craftsmanship, minimalism and the 'process as practice'.
