August’s Beer & Beadz was hosted by Leslie at her Squamish home studio. It was a gorgeous day for a drive and this event was well attended.
The main focus of this event was bead photography. Leslie discussed photographing beads and explained her setup and how and why it works. She demonstrated this and discussed some of the finer points of taking a good picture for submissions to magazines such as the Flow’s Women in Glass. She offered to take photos of a few beads brought by attendees.
Leslie is hoping to be taking photo commissions by the end of 2017. Details about this will be released by her at a later date.
The event was completed with a bead exchange and a tool & glass sale
