Seed Beading Boot Camp, Session 2: Right-Angle Weave

August 14 @ 11:30 am - 3:30 pm

Cdn $50.00

Course outline: Learn how to do three more of the most popular and versatile bead stitches in this second seed beading boot camp session 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 right-angle weave (also known as RAW). This is one of those basic bead stitches that is the foundation of many a great design. You’ll learn how to do flat right-angle weave with various bead combinations and discover why the stitch is called right-angle weave (hint: it’s the thread path, not the beads!). We’ll also look at ways of embellishing the surface of right-angle weave pieces. Available projects will be an embellished pendant or a bracelet.

Additional sessions for Seed Beading Boot Camp 2 are:
Wednesday, August 16: Cubic Right Angle Weave
Friday, August 18: Triangular Peyote

Take all three Session 2 classes for $135 + HST, or you may take any individual boot camp class in this session for $50.
