Beginner Seed Beading.
Next Class Date: TBA
This class is for beginners to learn the basics of even-count peyote stitch, which is an off-loom seed bead weaving technique. We will use high quality Japanese seed beads, known as delica beads, to work our pattern. We will use graph paper and colored pencils to build your pattern and then I will guide you through the process of learning how to weave the beads together using a needle and fireline thread. You may choose to follow the pattern I provide in a color scheme of your choice, or you may choose to do another simple pattern of your own design. Light refreshments and snacks will also be provided.
