Explorations in Freeform Peyote

January 19 @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pm

Cdn $70.00 +Kit fee: $25, payable to the instructor the day of the class.

Course outline: Have you ever wanted to design your own freeform peyote project, but just didn’t know where to start? Join Anne Marie Desaulniers to find out how! We will start with a review of the basics, but then students will be encouraged to work on projects of their own design. Bracelet, earrings, ring, brooch, pendant, necklace, or you could even decide to cover a stone, or piece of driftwood. Resin donuts will be included in the kit fee, as a base for larger projects (or for future use). The possibilities are endless, addictive, and only limited by your imagination! A stash buster, for sure!!

Skill level: All levels

Prerequisite: Students should be comfortable with a needle and thread.

Technique: Freeform peyote – basics and beyond!

Bring to class: Basic sewing and beading supplies! Interesting objects to use as focals, such as larger beads (stones, polymer clay, etc.), pendants, natural stones, metal pieces, small pieces of driftwood, etc. A variety of sizes, and shapes of seedbeads, in your preferred colour scheme (there will be some to share, in the kit provided, but not enough for a complete project). Crystals, Firepolish, pearls, and charms will also come in handy!

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.

How to Register and Cancellation Policy: see details below.
