About Holly in her own words: Working out of my studio in Austin, TX, I have been a professional artist my entire
working career. With a background in painting, art history, ceramics, textiles, jewelry and finally glass, my work melds all of these disparate disciplines into my creative work. I draw inspiration from a variety of cultural and historical traditions and incorporate them into my glass beads.
Skill level: No experience necessary
This Full-day class takes place from 9AM-5PM on Friday, August 16, 2019
