Bead Crochet: The Basics and Beyond! Part 1

Instructor: Bonni Poch

Course outline: Check your frustrations at the door!  We will start from the very beginning with super large beads and work slowly to give you the basics needed to create a bead crocheted bangle.   You will learn everything from how to load the beads, how to make patterns, and how to get past the first four rows of terror, to how to end your piece and seamlessly attach the ends to make a super strong, super beautiful bangle.

By the end of this session, you will have the skills needed to take the second class, which will be offered in the afternoon on the same day.  The second class will look at how to end your bracelet with a seamless join, how to join two ropes into one lanyard, and how to make a bezel using a bead crocheted rope.  You’re also free to continue working on any project in progress.  This is a great opportunity to get guidance on patterns, techniques, troubleshooting, or any other bead crochet-related question.

Bonus: Take this class on its own for $35 or pair it with Bead Crochet: The Basics and Beyond! Part 2, offered on the same day for $60.  That’s a $10 savings!
