Peyote Boot Camp: Odd-Count Peyote

May 23, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm

$45.00 – $50.00 +Kit fee: $25, payable to the instructor the day of the class.

Course outline: So you’ve learned even-count peyote stitch are now ready for the sister stitch: odd-count peyote or perhaps you’ve been intimidated by the odd-turn? Come on out and I’ll remove the scariness! This is also an excellent class if you need a refresher or need to learn the stitch to take one of Jean Power’s upcoming classes.

This four-hour class with Pamela Kearns will begin by using large cylinder beads, giving you the chance to learn the stitch before progressing to smaller size 10 delica beads. You will learn the three ways of making the odd-turn and what the pros and cons are of each method.

The class project will be a pendant featuring a single strip of peyote stitch, a stitch in the ditch design feature and two sparkling rich-cut fire polish beads. The kit will include various patterns that will work with the design. A kit is required; see details below.

Make your learning complete by taking the Peyote Boot Camp: Even Count Peyote on May 9. Save $5 on each class; you must register for both classes at the same time.

Skill level: Beginner

Prerequisite: Understanding and some experience with even count peyote.

Technique: Odd-count Peyote with emphasis on how to make the odd turn, how to read odd-count peyote patterns.

Bring to class: Magnification if required; scissors.
