Seed Beading Boot Camp: Beading on a Loom

June 13 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Cdn $50.00 +Kit fee: $10, payable to the instructor the day of the class.

Course outline: Beading has been done on looms by several cultures and the myriad of designs reflect a wide range of customs. There are many looms to choose from, depending on what you want to do. Join Pamela Kearns to explore the various looms and their benefits – and drawbacks. We will also looks at the various ways to finish off loomwork and attach a clasp.

The class will be technique driven. Handouts will include various patterns and you may bring and use your own loomwork pattern if you wish. You will need to purchase beads, thread, and findings to finish your piece. It is recommended that you use size 8/0 or size 6/0 beads so that you can finish the piece in class. The class will be limited to six students so that everyone gets individual attention.
