It all started with a piece of wire and a cup of coffee.
Jeanette Blix of Fundametals.net and Cindy Wimmer of Sweet Bead Studio, two jewelry artists, met at a coffee shop and talked wire. They talked about art and jewelry. They talked about growing and advancing their skills. And over a latte and cocoa, they talked about the lack of workshops in the Northern Virginia/DC metropolitan area.
“Well this will just not do!”, they decided.
And so, ArtBliss was born.
ArtBliss is a new series of workshops that encompass jewelry design and mixed media from internationally renowned instructors. ArtBliss brings in the Dream Teams of creative coaches and motivators in a warm, relaxing, and collaborative environment. Join us and open the door to creative discovery and inspiration!
