Seed Beading Boot Camp, Session 1: Brick Stitch

July 10 @ 11:30 am - 3:30 pm

Cdn $50.00

brick-stitch-boot-camp-1-700wCourse outline: Learn how to do three of the most popular and versatile bead stitches in our first ever Seed Beading Boot Camp with instructor Pamela Kearns. The classes will be technique driven and all the materials you need to learn the technique, with written instructions, will be included in the class fee.

You will then apply the technique to one of several projects that will be available or you may design your own project with Pam’s help. Any materials needed for the projects will be your responsibility to purchase but are readily available at BeadFX and you can use your student discount to purchase them.

In this session, you will learn how to do brick stitch – a stitch that you can use in a multitude of ways. You will learn how to start brick stitch from a ‘ladder stitch’ start as well as how to start it from an object like a metal link; as well as how to increase and decrease with brick stitch. Available projects will include two pendants; a pair of earrings; and a brick-stitched image that you can use as a pin. Samples of each of the projects will be available to see and bead substitutions can be made, where applicable.

Additional sessions for Seed Beading Boot Camp 1 are:
Wednesday, July 12: Spiral Rope
Friday, July 14: St. Petersburg Chain
