We are so thrilled to have Jen Lake teach a vintage seed bead & hair bobs class here at Teahouse next Sunday, September 30th from 1-4. There's still space to join us if you'd like! Find out more here. Welcome to Jen's rad + colorful world! YES.
So Miss Jen, you are not only a mega-craft superstar, but you're also an amazing art school teacher! Can you tell us about your path and moreover, how you find time to do it all?Art education found me; when i moved to SF the K-8 art position opened up at the school i was at & i jumped - i developed the whole art curriculum for the school. it was a ton of work, but all mine, and i'm super proud of it & my students. i started my first business, sprout studio, after i had a few years of teaching under my belt & could handle another creative endeavor. time? who has any?
Why seed beading and hair bobs? I have an extensive collection of vintage seed beads & other really pretty japanese, czech & german glass beads. the seed bead necklaces are super fun to make, you don't need an advanced skill level - just the where with all to be loose with color combos & have fun! i make all sorts of vintage hair bobby pins & barrettes & clips for sprout studio, so i thought it would be rad to offer that up to some students creativity & see what happens for them.
