Instructor: Aasia Hamid
Aasia has always been interested in art from fused glass wall art pieces to stained glass, from pottery to painting murals on the walls. She has been drawn to color and texture since she added beads to her needle 15 years ago. Mastering the art of bead weaving has been achieved by many hours of practice and experimentation. She hand fabricates each of her pieces with great attention to detail. Every detail must be beautiful, unusual and of excellent quality. Aasia likes to incorporate many mediums into her pieces like Kumihimo, bead weaving, polymer and epoxy clay. She has presented many of her masterpieces at juried art festivals.
