    I enjoyed this class very much — it was the highlight of my week! Every class presented me with a new concept or skill. Aside from learning how to perform loom beading, I also became more familiar with the Plains indigenous art forms. I am now inspired to try my hand at learning quill work. A good instructor is someone who has the required knowledge and skill to share with their students. An extraordinary teacher, like Heidi, is someone who goes beyond and is able to identify their students’ specific interests and capabilities and guide them to realize new accomplishments. I would highly recommend this class to anyone interested in learning more about Native American beadwork.
