Tapestry Sampler Bracelet

September 27 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm

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

Course outline: A bead loom is not just for beads! The Jewel Loom is an excellent way to create small tapestry weavings that can be used for bracelets, bookmarks and other small projects. This introductory class will teach you how to warp your loom and create a weft-facing tapestry using a couple of weaves. You’ll also learn how to add size 8/0 beads. The instructor will have samples using other materials, such as fine yarn and wire lace.

The class project will be a narrow tapestry bracelet embellished with beads. You may not completely finish your project in class but you will have all the instructions to complete your project at home.

Skill level: All levels

Prerequisite: N/A; some weaving experience may be helpful but not required.

Technique: Tapestry weaving, loom weaving with beads

Bring to class:

  • Jewel Loom
  • C-Lon cord, 1 spool medium weight
  • Size 8/0 Japanese seed beads (Czech beads are not suitable for this technique)
  • One spool of micro C-Lon in your choice of colour (for warping the loom and adding your beads)
  • 30mm tube end connector
  • Clasp of choice and findings to complete the bracelet
  • The instructor will provide a big-eye needle and size 11/0 seed beads used in joining your loomed piece to the tube ends.

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.
