Laura McCabe

June 20 - 23, 2019


Classroom Location

1016 W. 6th Avenue #406
Corner of 6th & K Street

This is a "place holder" so you can mark your calendar for Laura's return to Anchorage (she was last here in 2006!).  In addition to  Laura, we'll also have some "guest students."  Beadventures is combining its two activities--travel and Anchorage bead classes--into one.  Seven other students that are cruising to Alaska the week before will be joining us for Laura's workshops, making the gathering even more fun!


About Laura's Workshops . . .

There will be three workshops:

  • Thursday & Friday, June 20 & 21 from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m.
  • Saturday, June 22, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
  • Sunday, June 23, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Information about the projects Laura will be teaching should be available by late January/early February (these are photos from her gallery of work; she is working on new designs that will be part of our upcoming workshops).

About Our Teacher Laura McCabe . . .
Laura primarily is a self-taught beadweaver, with an education in historical costume reproduction and restoration and anthropology. She produces elaborately beaded body adornment and sculpture that combines Native American, African, and Victorian beadweaving techniques with modern materials and color schemes.

She started Just Let Me Bead in 1995, at which time she sold her original designs to boutiques and museum shops. In 2002, she began teaching her art and has continued to do so across the US and throughout the world. She exhibits her work in national and international beadwork exhibitions and continues to sell some of her finished work on line.

She maintains a private studio in Hampton, Connecticut where she, her husband Michael and a dog named Lucy continue to live the creative life.
