Seed Beading Boot Camp: Finishing Touches

July 25 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

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

Course outline: You love seed beading! Right-angle weave, spiral rope, loom work, St. Petersburg chain, peyote – you name it, you’re doing it! Problem is – you’re not sure how to attach a clasp or which kind of a clasp will work best.

Bring your ready-to-finish projects to this technique-based class with Pamela Kearns and, together, we’ll troubleshoot finishing options (there is always more than one way to finish a project) and what style of clasp will work for the project and your needs. The instructor will do her best to support finishing options in all seed beading techniques. The class will be limited to 6 students to give everyone personalized attention. When registering, please indicate which techniques your project(s) is/are using so she can be better prepared to help you. Thanks!

Skill level: All levels

Prerequisite: Seed beading experience

Technique: Finishing options

Bring to class:

  • A project(s) that is ready to finish with additional seed beads used in the project (you need to know how to do your project, so bring any needed instructions too)
  • Beading needle, scissors
  • Additional thread/Fireline used in the project
  • Clasps that you may want to use. Clasps can also be purchased during the class after consultation.

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.
