Colors Of The Stone with To Bead True Blue & Tucson Bead and Design Show

Colors Of The Stone Fall • Aug 29 - Sep 1, 2024

The Fall 2024 Colors of the Stone with To Bead True Blue and Artisan Workshops is a warm-up for the Winter 2025 Show. New artisans are welcomed to exhibit their handcraft at the Fall event and these recently discovered artists and artisans include both established --and emerging --glass artists, gem cutters, ceramists, bead makers, jewelry artists, mineral hunters, lapidaries, and gold smiths, who work out of small scale workshops, ateliers and studios.

Whether you are a professional designer or a hobbyist, this is an exclusive opportunity to get a head start on the coming year. Shop from an unrivaled collection of artisan handcraft and buy direct from the source at excellent prices. Many products are offered at this show for the first time and by the artisans themselves.

Artisan Workshops offers handcraft and design workshops where the attention is on small production studio skills that have been overlooked in favor of mass production. Everyone has an opportunity to take a workshop in subjects such as bead making, jewelry design, knotting, wirework, and art metal clay. Workshops are taught by artists in residence at all skill levels.
