Bead Crochet 101 – Getting the Basics Down

January 14 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm

Cdn $40.00 +Kit fee: $10 payable to the instructor the day of the class.

Course outline: Instructor Bonni Poch will take the mystique out of bead crochet. We start with the very basics – the crochet stitch and gigantic pony beads. Each step of the process is given as much time as needed and we move forward when everyone is comfortable. By the end of the class, you will be able to design a crochet pattern, complete a crochet tube, cast on, and cast off. Note: a kit is required; see details below.

Skill level: Beginner/Intermediate

Prerequisite: A basic understanding of bead sizes and some basic beadwork is preferred. Crochet skills are not required!

Technique: Bead crochet, pattern design

Bring to class: All students will need to bring a 1.75mm or 2.0mm crochet hook. We will be shopping for 3 colours of 6/0 beads and thread on the day of the class.

Of special note: the class patterns and instructions from our classes are for your personal use only. Please respect the intellectual property of our artists/instructors by not sharing, selling, or teaching the patterns you receive from the classes you take.
