BEADING ON THE LOOM OF TIME with BROOKE FLYING BEAR from MADE IN PRAYER

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 which is a very versatile and old technique that is found all over the world.  We will go over the many steps of creating a beadwork piece, from 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 loom beading stitch and how to plan a bracelet design.  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.  We will provide a bead loom for each participant in the class which you will be able to take home at the end of the class.
