Seed Beading Boot Camp: Right-Angle Weave
April 4, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pmCdn $50.00 +Kit fee: $10, payable to the instructor the day of the class.
Course outline: 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.
The class will be technique driven and all the materials you need to learn the technique 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. Available projects will include an embellished pendant and a bracelet.
Skill level: Beginner
Technique: Right-angle Weave
Bring to class: Scissors, magnification if required. You will also need to purchase your own beads for the projects.
