Museum of Beadwork

Caravan Beads is delighted to continue to support the 501c3 non-profit Museum of Beadwork, and its mission of community-building and education for the community of bead artists.

The Museum opened its doors in August of 2023. Caravan Beads currently provides solar powered electricity, rent and utilities, as well as staffing and other startup costs associated with founding the Museum of Beadwork. As the Museum continues to gain new members, these costs will be assumed by the non-profit.

The exhibition area for beaded artwork showcases beaded jewelry, clothing, sculpture, accessories, and tapestries as well as collaborative community projects and the work of contemporary artists.

The ongoing exhibitions present information on beadwork styles from all over the globe, the historic development of beads throughout human history, highlights of modern bead making processes, as well as an extensive representations of beadwork. The museum also has a classroom area with an exciting array of workshops, classes, and events.

Please take a moment to visit the Museum of Beadwork website and join the museum mailing list, so you can be among the first to hear about new beading competitions, exhibits, and our progress as we bring the museum to life.
