Welcome to the Beads of Courage fundraising page for the Midwest Lampworkers Guild.
The Midwest Lampworkers Guild, based in Omaha, Nebraska, has at its heart glass beads—the making, the detailing, the continued skill building—but incorporates other media as well and encourages its members to stretch their creativity through a variety of artistic and learning opportunities.
In 2012, the Guild adopted and continues to this day to support Beads of Courage as the primary beneficiary of its Art in the Bag event and other fundraising endeavors. Art in the Bag features an afternoon tea with live music, a silent auction of handmade bags, lampwork beadmaking demonstrations, and fun activity stations.
Proceeds from the event support the program at Children’s Hospital and Medical Center in Omaha as well as around the country and across the globe.
