These classes are designed for both the novice and the experienced beader, progressing from a basic string of beads to complex designs with a focus on color and composition. A variety of stitches are demonstrated and practiced such as peyote and other popular styles. Bead weaving and loom work may be covered, depending on student interest. For new students, instructions are provided so you can practice and work on your projects at home between classes allowing for a new project to be introduced and started each week. Experienced beaders can work on independent projects with guidance provided by expert instructors. Kits and materials are available for purchase during class. Students are encouraged to bring their own materials, tools, and project ideas as well.
