PAUL MCALLISTER: INSTRUCTOR PROFILE
I became interested in seed bead weaving in 2015, as I prepared to retire from a career as a statistician. Initially I started with bookmarks and simple bracelets. The challenge for me was to create more realistic images using the beads. I gradually expanded the size of my tapestries and improved my ability to create patterns that result in realistic images. I have utilized my computing skills to create my suite of tools to create bead patterns.
