Beading is an ancient art that spans across most traditional cultures around the world including the Native American traditions of South, Central and North America. It has also been found in traditional cultures of Africa, Europe, Asia, and Australia.
It is an incredible meditation and a great way to connect with the divine patterns that are within all things.
In this class we will learn the basics of LOOM BEADING. We will go over many aspects of creating a beadwork piece from first the intention that comes even before a creation is made, how to choose colors, how to begin and finish a piece, how to create different shapes with a simple stitch, how to make a necklace, a bracelet, earrings, and how to work with creating decorative or ceremonial pieces. Beads, thread and needles will be supplied for the class in basic colors. If you would like to bring your own beads you are welcome to. It is suggested to begin working with size 11 beads or larger if you are just beginning. This way you can really see the pattern and how the beads are working together. You can either use regular seed beads or you can use Miyuki delica beads.
