The Artist:

Fiber artist, Carol Cypher, teaches beadwork and feltmaking and the provocative pairing of the two, in the U.S.A., Japan, Australia and Europe. She is author of MASTERING BEADWORK: A COMPREHENSIVE GUIDE TO OFF-LOOM TECHNIQUES. In addition to her HAND FELTED JEWELRY AND BEADS: 25 ARTFUL DESIGNS and HOW WE FELT: DESIGNS AND TECHNIQUES FROM CONTEMPORARY FELT ARTISTS, she wrote a Japanese book on feltmaking, published by Patchwork Tsushin LTD from an English manuscript, translated by Motoko Natsubori.

Carol has exhibited in the U.S.A., Japan and Scotland. Her articles and designs appear in several books and magazines in the U.S.A., Australia, Japan and Europe. TV appearances include PBS’s Beads, Baubles and Jewels and D.I.Y. network’s Uncommon Threads and Knitting Daily/Shay Pendray’s Needle Arts Studio. She enjoys her reputation as an enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and generous teacher, offering fresh and contemporary approaches. Please visit her blog spot at for more information about Carol. Listed above are the names, dates, and time for each class. Please read each description carefully because some classes have a kit fee and others have a supply list. All skill levels are welcome at Friday and Saturday’s classes. Sunday’s class is intermediate skill level.
