Attending one of Heidi’s private workshops was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. For me, the experience was well worth the cost of the class. Heidi is a natural teacher who effectively leads you through the experience of designing, assembling, and finishing a bead embroidery project in a single day. With a positive and encouraging manner, she teaches you the techniques you need to know and shares tips based on her experience and expertise. As your piece evolves, she provides design guidance in the form of options to consider and alternative techniques to employ . It was a concentrated six hours, but time seemed to fly.
One of the things I appreciated most about the workshop was that it was not completely prescriptive, I was given the opportunity to select design components from a vast array of choices (cabochons, antique buttons, and other design elements) and then combine them into a piece that was a unique reflection of my personality and taste.
Heidi is a consummate bead embroidery artist with a willingness to share her knowledge and expertise with others.

Heidi~I just wanted to thank you again for a motivating Saturday. I absolutely loved the one~on~one instruction. Your insight was extremely helpful and I am totally stoked about my new piece. Hope we can do it again..real soon!
Thank you so very, very much for a wonderful workshop!! I will always cherrish the special treatment! The genuine welcome, the delicious breakfast and lunch, meeting a woman who is an inspiration to so many and discovering that she is everything and more that I had heard about her.
I can't tell you how much I enjoyed the 2day's spent with you. I've never felt so strongly about getting to a class ever. Now I know why. Some classes (retreats) are great but don't leave a mark on your heart; this one did. I don't think I've ever met such a peaceful person. That peace seemed to flow through both Terri and myself. Everyone loved our pieces and some were talking about maybe next year.
I so enjoyed our time together. You are an amazing artist AND teacher. You give so much of yourself, your knowledge and your talent. You should feel a tremendous amount of pride with each piece your students create during their time with you and in the future as it includes so much of your generous spirit.

Heidi has been my inspiration since I started beading six years ago. Her work speaks to me, if you are familiar with Heidi and her work you will understand. Getting to spend a day beading with her at her studio in the beautiful mountains was a real treat. She is so willing to share her beading knowledge and truly wants to help you to succeed and grow in your beading endeavors. I admire Heidi not only as a master bead artist but as a wonderful person. I would recommend her workshop to anyone, not only is it a great learning experience; it is good for the body and soul. Thank you so much Heidi for all your inspiration and insight, I hope to do it again.
“Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.”
A few years ago, I made the trip from Michigan to Colorado to take a private workshop from Heidi. Best decision ever! Two years later, I made the trip again.
More than step-by-step instructions, Heidi fully involves the student in the beading process. Her gift is not only in the creation of breathtakingly, beautiful beaded items, but in her ability to teach as well. She invites the student into her world and gives them a tour.
Thank you, Heidi, for sharing your gift!

Taking reservations for summer 2020
Take a private workshop with me, Heidi Kummli at your side. My summer studio rest above our garage in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. We are at 9000 ft, about 45 min from Boulder Colorado, or 30 min from Nederland.
My summer studio is only available during the summer months, while the bumpy road in is still passable, and the studio still warm. During our time together we will work on a kit of your choosing or whatever it is you would like to learn. The cost of this workshop includes a lunch and six hours of class time per day. All materials or kits are included in the price, depending on what that might be.
The cost of the workshops are listed below. The more people in the class the price goes down $25 per person per day. The more days the price also goes down.
One day workshop: 6 hours class time, 1 hour lunch $600
Two day workshop: 12 hours class time, 2 lunches $500 a day or $1000
Three day workshop: 18 hours class time, 3 lunches $400 a day or $1200
The above prices are for a private one person workshop. For each additional person the price goes down $25 per person per day. Limited to 7 people.
Example: Three people for one day would cost $525 each
Example: Six people for 3 days would cost $250 each per day, or $750 each total.
If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to email me and ask. The above prices do not include lodging. I recommend Staying in Nederland, or Estes Park. There are also many Air B&B in the area.
